Some stores say 'no' to Thanksgiving Day shopping

Posted: Updated:
(CNN) Under a lot of pressure to start Black Friday early, some retailers are making news by just saying no.

GameStop and Nordstrom announced they will not be open for business on Thanksgiving.

The retailers are following the lead of Costco, which said its stores will be closed on Turkey Day to give employees time with their families.

The trend toward early Black Friday sales ramped up last year with Kmart opening at 6 a.m. on Thanksgiving. Both Macy's and Wal-Mart opened their doors at 6 p.m.
