Walmart Stores says it will open all hours on Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving Day
The Thanksgiving holiday, the largest shopping day of the year, has become the largest source of income for some Walmarts.
Walmart Stores said it will officially open all of its stores on Thanksgiving, as the company celebrates its 25th anniversary.
The move comes as the holiday is the largest revenue driver for the company, which generates nearly half its annual sales from the sale of Thanksgiving Day merchandise.
Walmarts CEO Doug McMillon said the holiday would bring more customers into the stores and more shoppers to the stores, making the holiday more profitable.
Walter White, the creator of the TV show “Breaking Bad,” has also appeared at several Walmows.
WalMart said that while the company will continue to offer a variety of food, drink and non-food offerings on Thanksgiving for the foreseeable future, there will be no special events.
Walmart said it expects to continue offering discounts and specials to its customers during the holiday season.
Walman’s announcement comes on the heels of Macy’s, Sears, JC Penney and many other retailers announcing they will also open Thanksgiving on the holiday.
The company said that Walmots decision comes after more than two decades of consistent growth.
Walton said he is excited to be able to open the doors to our stores on the very first day of Thanksgiving.
“Walmart has always been committed to serving our customers on Thanksgiving and we are thrilled to welcome them to our store today,” he said in a statement.
“We look forward to welcoming them to Walmart stores on that special day, with a new approach to our holiday celebration.”
