Costco has also made it very clear that stores will be closed up on Thanksgiving every single year in their Warehouse Hours & Holiday Closures. Back in 2014, a Costco spokesperson had said “our employees work especially hard during the holiday season and we simply believe that they deserve the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with their families. Nothing more complicated than that.”
