Not all retail chains will open on Thanksgiving

  • Costco (COST +0.6%), Nordstrom (JWN +0.2%), and BJ's Wholesale Club won't get pulled into the Thanksgiving Day shopping fray as they will maintain current policy to give workers the day off.
  • The impact on sales from the decision is hard to gauge, but the retailers think they will reap a significant PR benefit by keeping to their Black Friday tradition.

  • Costco is my favorite stock and my favorite store. As I have said for years, they take care of customers, employees and shareholders equally well. Kudos

  • Agreed. Costco is my favorite store and the best run retail company in america. I only trade ETF's yet Costco remains the only individual company stock that I own and plan on continuing to add to my position.
