CLOSED THANKSGIVING DAY

Framingham area stores that are closed on Thanksgiving Day

FRAMINGHAM, MA -This year Framingham based Staples, TJ Maxx and Marshalls, along with other major retailers will be joing the growing trend to not open their  stores on Thanksgiving Day.

"We know that the holidays can be a hectic time but Staples is here to ensure shoppers and businesses of all sizes have the tools they need for a successful season," Steve Matyas, Chief Executive Officer, Staples Retail was quoted in a press release. "Our priority as an organization is to ensure that our store associates have the dedicated time they deserve to relax and enjoy the company of family and friends on Thanksgiving Day, so they’ll be ready to support customers on Black Friday and throughout the holidays."

Starting in 2015 Staples joined the growing trend in retail -- something that appeals to those who don't like the over-commercialization of holidays, and of course the employees who would rather have the day off.

Other Framingham area stores that won't be open Thanksgiving day include BJ'S Warehouse, many large stores in Shopper's World including DSW, Barnes & Noble, Marshalls, T.J. Maxx , Pier 1 Imports, Petsmart, Guitar Center, Burlington, Jo-Anne Fabrics, REI, Home Depot and Lowe's.

At 7:00 p.m., everyone is invited to come inside Nevins Hall for music by the Framingham Public Schools Elementary and Middle School Band, photos with Santa, hot cocoa, cookies and candy canes.
