You probably haven’t been able to open your email for the last two weeks without being assaulted by subject lines like:
Pre Black Friday Sales Start NOW
Don’t Wait Until Black Friday, Shop (store name) Thanksgiving Day
TV news shows are running stories about people who spend their Thanksgiving Day either waiting in line for a store to open, or shopping the stores that are open. It has been a growing trend for the last few years.
Even though we are retailers, we don’t think this is such a good idea. Are you surprised?
Look, if you aren’t content with spending time with family, friends, and a turkey leg then you can shop AllergyStore.Com on-line. In fact, we hope you do find some time to visit our website over the holiday week-end. We will have some great sales and offers. Just don’t call the 800 number and expect to speak to someone. It is not that don’t value your business. We do. But we also value the time-honored tradition of spending time with family on Thanksgiving Day.
You see, The Allergy Store is a family-owned business. We love our families and we know our employees love their families as well. That is why we will be closed both Thanksgiving Day and the day afterwards as well.
We know that it is important for our employees spend time with the ones they love. Their families are growing. This past year has brought our employees new spouses, new babies, and new grandbabies. Our employees have many things for which to be thankful. We want to make sure they have plenty of time to give thanks, strengthen family connections, travel if necessary to be with loved ones , and return on Monday, December 1 ready to answer your questions, ship your orders, and help you solve your allergy problems.
So The Allergy Store is joining the ranks of such varied stores as CostCo, Joann Fabrics, Nordstrom and DSW Shoes. We will not be open on Thanksgiving Day. We will have some great Black Friday specials, so be sure to check the website and our FaceBook page later in the week.
Happy Thanksgiving from The Allergy Store family!
