This year could be the year that Macy’s breaks a 155 year tradition.
There are reports Macy’s will open on Thanksgiving Day and stay open for 24-hours straight.
One employee told the Chicago Sun-Times that she received a memo stating the store would open on Thanksgiving night at 8 p.m.
Macy’s has not responded to the reports. The trend of stores opening on Thanksgiving, started in 2012 when Wal-Mart and other retailers announced they would open their stores at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
In 2011, many stores began opening at midnight on morning of Black Friday the day after Thanksgiving.
