I may shop online on Thanksgiving Day. I suppose some IT guy is having to give up time with his family to make sure the company website doesn't crash. However, I will NOT shop at a brick and mortar store on Thanksgiving Day unless it's a drug store like Walgreens or CVS which never closes. Opening on Thanksgiving was a terrible precedent started amongst big box retailers by Kmart a number of years ago and I gave up shopping with them because of it.
I definitely agree with this and I think it is ridiculous that stores are open on Thanksgiving and other holidays. I will never shop on these crazy days to score some deal with hundreds of other idiots. But such is life for many workers in today's society.
