Macy’s planning its first Thanksgiving opening

NEW YORK — Macy’s Inc. says it will open most of its stores for the first time on Thanksgiving, breaking a longstanding tradition for the venerable retailer.

In a release issued late Monday, the Cincinnati-based chain said it will open its doors at 8 p.m. on that day and will remain open for 24 hours straight until the close of business on Friday, which is usually about 10 p.m. Last year, the chain opened its doors at midnight right after the holiday. The department store chain cited increasing demand from shoppers for the earlier opening.
