Growing up, Thanksgiving was a day spent at home with family. Eating, relaxing and just spending time being thankful for all that we had. Sharing memories, lots of food, and family flowing in and out.
Over the past few years, it has become more and more common for stores to stay open, or open at some point during the day. The “Black Friday” suddenly crept into Thanksgiving Day.
Last year, with the pandemic, crowds were a health threat. In-store shopping was risky for consumers. It wasn’t such a surprise that businesses announced they’d be closed on Thanksgiving.
Many of those retailers did make the decision mainly based on COVID-19 risks, but also used it as a gift to those employees who had worked so hard all year.
This year, some stores will remain closed on Thanksgiving– which could be a response to the positive feedback from last year!
So, what stores will be closed in the Augusta area? Here’s what we know so far, according to BlackFriday.com!
