Costco is opening up for Black Friday on FRIDAY, giving their employees Thanksgiving OFF!

'Our employees work especially hard during the holiday season and we simply believe they deserve the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with their families. Nothing more complicated than that' a Costco spokesman said.

There's no word on when Costco will open on Black Friday. The closest location for us is the new warehouse in Syracuse.  I may make the trip to shop at their store just because they decided to stay closed on Thanksgiving. This is the kind of business I want to give my money to.

Costco is closed for other holidays too, including Christmas and Easter.

Maybe more companies should follow in Costco's footsteps and appreciate their employees instead of the all mighty dollar.
