GameStop just earned a little respect from its employees and their families alike.

The video gaming chain, founded in 1984 as “Babbages” has been confirmed as one of a growing number of companies refusing to open of Thanksgiving. With over 6,000 retail locations under their belt, that means a lot of employees will be able to enjoy the holiday with at home instead of at work.

For gamers who are looking to get their holiday video game purchases out of the way early, don’t fear for long; GameStop will be reopening their stores just in time for early Black Friday at Midnight.

The holiday shopping season is the source of major revenue for major retailers. Each season has seen earlier and earlier beginnings to holiday sales, prompting protests from workers and worker’s rights groups for years. GameStop is following the steps of other companies like Macy’s and Walmart to keep those groups happy.
