I think this is a terrible trend. It's Thanksgiving, for crying out loud. Let people be home with their families...

Liliana - so I guess I won't be seeing you at the Whiskey Wind on Thursday? :)

Sandra Bonczyk said on Facebook: "dislike. Let employees have a day with their families."

I don't see these particular businesses being open as part of the larger retail trend. There are hundreds, if not, thousands of people on the North Fork who will be working on Thanksgiving including local police officers, employees at ELIH, San Simeon, Peconic Landing, employees at homes for the developmentally disabled, etc. On top of it, if someone has an emergency our local volunteer firefighters and rescue squads will respond even on Thanksgiving. I don't begrudge any of these people the opportunity for a cup of coffee or to fill up their tanks.

Sandy -- you forgot about local journalists -- we will also be working through the holidays and will need coffee :)
