Several retailers have taken a stand against Thanksgiving Day openings this year, with GameStop, Lowes, TJ Maxx and Staple’s saying they will keep their doors closed until Black Friday. Although at first glance it appears encouraging for those who complain that shoppers and employees should spend the holiday with their families, a report from in-store analytics firm Shopper Trak found that Thanksgiving Day store visits in 2014 increased 27.3 percent from the year prior.
