•  The Washington Examiner reports that "Walmart will be closed on Thanksgiving this year, following other stores also closing their doors that holiday.

"The nation's largest grocer similarly closed last Thanksgiving and the one before in light of the coronavirus pandemic, but it is unclear if all its supercenters and neighborhood markets will be permanently closed on the holiday. Walmart still anticipates a busy holiday season, hiring an additional workforce of 40,000 people for the season.

"Kohl's and Best Buy announced that their stores would also close for the holiday, joining Target, which decided last year to close every Thanksgiving. All stores will reopen for the shopping holiday Black Friday."
