Kohl’s, located in Stone Mountain and Lithonia, has joined the growing list of stores that will be opening their doors to shoppers on Thanksgiving.
On Monday, the store announced it would open at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, which is Kohl’s earliest start ever to Black Friday festivities, according to a release. Stores will be open for 28 hours straight — from 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 28 through midnight Friday nationwide.
Kohl’s is one of many stores to announce it will be opening on Thanksgiving. Macy’s made headlines last week when the department store announced it would be open on Thanksgiving Day for the first time in 150 years.
“Shopping over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend has become a much-anticipated tradition enjoyed with friends and family,” said Michelle Gass, Kohl’s chief customer officer, in a news release.
“As many customers are eager to get a jumpstart on their shopping, we are opening our stores at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day as a convenience to our customers who want to make Kohl’s their first stop.”
This year many shoppers have been critical of stores that haul out the Christmas supplies and merchandise before the calendar even hits October. Customers complained about the early Christmas displays on Kohl’s Facebook page in September.
