It's not uncommon for businesses in Genesee County to close on Thanksgiving. As a matter of fact, it's almost impossible to find anything open aside from gas stations.
In the past, many retailers would open their doors on Thanksgiving in anticipation of Black Friday shopping. However, that trend has shifted a bit since the pandemic.
This year, you'll find most stores closed on Thanksgiving Day. However, once Black Friday hits, everything will open back up and it's business as usual. This really doesn't give employees much time to spend with their families.

Well, there is one business in Grand Blanc that understands the importance of spending time with family around the holidays, and that is the Crossbow Inn on Saginaw Street.
The owners of Crossbow Inn are giving their employees four days off so that they can spend time with their families over the long holiday weekend.
Crossbow In will be closed from November 24 through November 27. That is almost unheard of these days. That truly goes to show how much they truly value their employees. Sure, they could stay open and make a bunch of money over the busy holiday weekend but they're not.
They posted earlier today on Facebook that they would be closed for four days and I just thought it was so cool that they were doing this for their employees that I wanted to share it.
If you know of any other businesses that are doing this for their employees, please let us know.
