Should retail stores give their employees a break and close on Thanksgiving?

It seems that the Connecticut list of stores closing up shop for Thanksgiving gets longer every year. I applaud the owners who appear to be taking their employees' family time into consideration on Thanksgiving Day especially if they need to be at work extra early the next morning for the store's Black Friday opening.

The following is a list of stores that will be closed on Thanksgiving according to theblackfriday.com. The time listed after the store signifies their Black Friday opening.
