Sears says stores will be open Thanksgiving day

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Sears is doing something it's never done in its 124-year history.

Stores will be open on Thanksgiving day.

All Sears stores will stay open for a half-day, from 7:00 a.m. until noon.

The company hopes to cash in on shoppers looking for early bird savings.

Sears plans to give shoppers a five percent extra discount on that day if they use a Sears credit card.
