INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Electronics store hhgregg announced today that they will close all 220 brick-and-mortar stores on Thanksgiving this year. This makes hhgregg the first major electronics retailer to announce closure on the holiday.

“We stand behind our core values and beliefs of being a family-first company,” said Bob Riesbeck, President and CEO of hhgregg. “It’s important to us that our associates are able to be home with their families on Thanksgiving, and we are encouraging our customers to do the same – knowing great deals will be available online, on Black Friday and through the weekend.”

The consumer electronics chain is based out of Indianapolis. There are three stores in the Indianapolis area, and they will reopen on 7 a.m. on Black Friday.

Last week, the Mall of America also made a bold move and announced they will be closed on Thanksgiving for the first time in four years.
