Mills Fleet Farm commercial advertises that store will be closed on Thanksgiving [VIDEO]
Mills Fleet Farm is proud to be bucking the trend and staying closed on Thanksgiving.
On Thanksgiving, Walmart and Best Buy will open at 6 p.m., with Target opening a couple of hours later.
But in a new commercial, Mills Fleet Farm trumpets the fact that its Black Friday sales won't begin until, you know, Black Friday.
"At Mills Fleet Farm, Thanksgiving is about family, food, and football," the commercial says. "Mills Fleet Farm is closed on Thanksgiving so our employees and customers can spend the entire day celebrating with family and friends."
"Mills Fleet Farm was built on strong family values and traditions. The holiday shopping season can wait," it continues.
Here's the video:
Family, food, football... and beer bong hits? But in all seriousness, it's nice to see a local company push back against "Black Friday creep."
