Costco, Nordstrom among retailers refusing to open on Thanksgiving

In the wake of retailers such as Macy's, Kohl's and Sears announcing store openings at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, others are expected to follow suit. However, some retailers have announced they will not subject employees to working on the holiday and will keep doors closed. Some familiar names include Barnes & Noble, Bed, Bath and Beyond, Costco, Crate & Barrel, DSW, Home Depot, Nordstrom, Publix and RadioShack, to name a few. And maybe these retailers are onto something, as a RichRelevence survey reveals that 36 percent of consumers "hate" to shop on the holiday, and 26 percent "dislike" it. Story
