As you may have heard on your radio, The Southside Mall in Oneonta will not be open on Thanksgiving Day (exception of large retailers), despite a national trend in the last couple of years for retailers to be open on Thanksgiving to increase holiday sales figures. 

I remember when I first heard of this idea.  I was very disappointed that retailers would open on a day dedicated to family.  I felt sorry for those who would be required to work on Thanksgiving and miss spending time with their family.  You can be certain of this, you won't find me shopping on Thanksgiving Day, no matter the time of day or special sale prices offered.  How about you?
