American citizens, Either you support global-trading (Holiday Season) or you don't. Do you acknowledge that most of our American-flag symbol products are made in other countries? This is considered free trade, free global trading. I feel it is disrespectful for another country's entrepreneurs to have the right to make American flag-products [or another country to profit from another's flag ] for their personal profit. Did I mention that I used to work at several, American-brand retail-store chains--some before they closed or went out of business?

Store Closed on Black Friday
Store Closed on Thanksgiving Day
Take time to create new, or continue your productive family-tradition holiday moments. I don't know whether it's my personal company brand or my ministry brand God in Christ's Purpose Assembly, empathy of parents working on day, but I would like to support the effort of stores and non-emergency businesses opening after 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day or closed on #ThanksgivingDay. So for NewMonday, and a new purpose, I will highlight stores that have such business hours on Thanksgiving Day--hoping that you will support, too.
Don't shop or similar activities until after 6 p.m. America values #Familytime.
