Thank You, Costco

Float in the Thanksgiving Day Parade in Detroit

Over the years I’ve seen relatives and friends leave their Thanksgiving celebration early so they can get an early start on holiday sales at stores.

A time for family to watch parades, celebrate the holiday, and give thanks is interrupted for that all important discount or special deal only available Thanksgiving Day.

How wonderful it was to read the news today that Costco will continue its over 30-year tradition of not opening on Thanksgiving Day.

According to Paul Latham, Costco vice president for membership and marketing,

Our employees work especially hard during the holiday season, and we simply believe they deserve the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with their families.

Thank you, Costco.

  1. Costco is a stand-up company. One of the few that really respects its employees. We’ve still got a Sam’s membership (it’s free and kinda a long story) but I pay for Costco for us and for my parents as it is, strangely, a retail company that I actually respect.
