Reports: Macy's to open on Thanksgiving Day

Posted: Updated:

Macy's could break a 155-year tradition by opening on Thanksgiving Day and stay open for 24 hours straight, according to reports.

One employee told the Chicago Sun-Times that she received a memo stating the store would open at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving night.

Macy's has not responded to the reports.

The trend started in 2012 when Walmart and other retailers announced they would open their stores at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.

In 2011, many stores began opening at 12 a.m. on the morning of Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.
