American multinational retailer Walmart has announced that all of its US store locations will close for Thanksgiving Day on November 25 as a ‘thank you’ to associates for their continued hard work during the pandemic. This is the second year running that Walmart will be closing its stores on Thanksgiving Day to give time back to associates.

Associate Elizabeth Brown, a people lead from Store 5260 in Rogers, Arkansas, shared the news before a crowd of approximately 1,000 associates during the retailer’s Associate Celebration meeting, Walmart said in a press release.

Closing its stores on Thanksgiving Day is an additional way the retailer is thanking associates for their dedication to serving customers and their perseverance throughout the pandemic.

Throughout the pandemic, Walmart has continued to place a heavy emphasis on the well-being of its associates. Recently, the company expanded access to no-cost counselling and extended its COVID-19 emergency leave policy through Sept. 30.

“Closing our stores on Thanksgiving Day is one way we’re saying ‘thank you’ to our teams for their dedication and hard work this year. We hope everyone will take the opportunity to be with their loved ones during what’s always a special time,” said Dacona Smith, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Walmart US.

Stores will operate as per their regular hours on Wednesday, November 24.
