Break with tradition


The coronaviru­s pandemic has forced many retailers to break with a recent Thanksgivi­ng tradition: opening stores to early holiday shoppers.

Best Buy, Walmart, Macy’s, Target and other big chains will be keeping doors closed today. The move comes as retailers adjust to the pandemic by seeking to limit the number of shoppers crowding stores. Stores are due to open the day after Thanksgivi­ng, but companies are encouragin­g customers to shop online to avoid crowds and chaos.
