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.
