FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — On Tuesday, Best Buy announced it would be closing its stores on Thanksgiving Day.
The company released the following statement on Tuesday:
"We can all agree that, so far, 2020 has turned out differently than what we might have expected. And now, the holiday season at Best Buy, including Thanksgiving Day, is going to look different, too.
To meet our customers’ changing lives this holiday, we’re enhancing the way we fulfill orders, from offering more convenient pickup options at our stores to making sure BestBuy.com orders arrive at the right time.
We’re also going to start offering some of the hottest deals of the season earlier than ever, to make it even easier for our customers to check off their gift lists.
With these changes, we’ve also decided to close our stores on Thanksgiving Day. As always, customers will still be able to shop on BestBuy.com and via the Best Buy app.
Although this holiday season may certainly look different, we’re ready to once again be there for our customers how, when and where they need us, during the most exciting time of the year."
Best Buy now joins the growing list of stores closing on Thanksgiving which includes both Target and Walmart.
