What's that due for all you Black Friday shoppers? That is still unknown, the reason for the closure,

 “We know this has been a trying year, and our associates have stepped up. We hope they will enjoy a special Thanksgiving Day at home with their loved ones,” said John Furner, President and CEO of Walmart U.S. in the statement.

Most of us has experienced Black Friday large crowds, people pushing and shoving, and really no way of practicing any short of social distancing. I would say that I am shocked, but I am not, in the next few weeks I can see more big box stores announcing that they will not be open for Thanksgiving shopping, or even Black Friday shopping, and ALL of the deals will be online purchases only. Most of the sales start on Thanksgiving night and go into Friday.

Walmart and Sam's Club will be opened on Black Friday, but I don't think we will be able to shop like you have in the past, those details will be announced later.
