For the first time in internet history, a web site will become inaccessible to all and "close" its doors to celebrate a holiday. On Thursday, November 28th, otherwise known as "Thanksgiving"
While other companies such as Walmart, Target, Kohls, and Macy’s promote door busting deals and being open for Thanksgiving, Keith Johnson, President of BellHop.com believes that these corporations are missing the point. "I feel ashamed for the executives who made the decision to remain open on Thanksgiving. They are more than likely with their families while they force workers to work on a day when we’re suppose to be giving thanks," states Johnson.
"Sure I’m trying to prove a point. Thanksgiving is an American tradition that dates back to our creation as a nation. It’s a right to celebrate it. Now corporations that promote "Made in America" are ignoring this right, just to make a little extra money," says Johnson. "What’s next? I foresee Walmart being open Christmas morning so we can return the gifts we all got. Maybe people can even set their Christmas trees up in the parking lot so they can just walk to return our gifts!"
Try and access BellHop.com on Thanksgiving and the servers will be shut down. "Don’t worry. We’ll be back and open for business on "Black Friday" to provide all the great vacation deals we can offer. But on Thanksgiving, sorry we’re closed. Enjoy the day, give thanks for everything that you have, and we’ll see you bright and early at 12:00am on the 29th."
