Unlike most U.S. retailers, the world's largest retailer of games will be closed on Thanksgiving in the United States. GameStop announced that it will shut down its stores in the United States next Thursday. CEO Paul Raines confirmed the news during a post-earnings call on Thursday.
"We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day next week in the United States out of respect for our associates and their families," he said. "Sometimes, we have to not let the pressure from other retailers distract us from our values."
