As the holiday season nears, we want to remind you that state law prohibits stores with 5,000 s.f. or more of retail sales space to be open on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 27, 2014 and Christmas Day, Thursday, December 25, 2014. The fines for being open are stiff and we expect state enforcers to be on the lookout given the heightened interest in this law in recent past.
