TUCSON - The newest trend this winter isn't leather jackets, it's taking a stand against shopping on Thanksgiving. Consumers are defining the "reason for the season" and stores are listening.

"Consumers are 'consumed out'", said Anita Bhappu, an associate professor of retailing and consumer sciences at the University of Arizona. "Last year, there were clearly some signs that consumers had backed off and on top of that, a large percentage of consumers were shopping online."

Thousands of people are sharing a "reason for the season" post on Facebook, declaring they will not take part in any shopping on Thanksgiving.

"All of the stores being open on Thanksgiving, I don't think that will be a trend everyone's going to jump on the bandwagon for," said Bhappu.

Stores that have stated they will not be open on Thanksgiving, include:

  • Nordstrom
  • Marshalls
  • Home Goods
  • Home Depot
  • Barnes and Noble
  • Crate and Barrel
  • Burlington Coat Factory
  • Patagonia
  • Jo-Ann Stores
  • Sierra Trading Post
  • Mattress Firm
  • Half Price Books

If you'd like to learn more about the changes in consumer behaviors and attitudes, the University of Arizona will be holding a presentation at Playground Bar and Lounge on Thursday, November 12th, from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.
