One example is Patagonia, the outdoor clothing company.

"Our company-owned stores are closed on Thanksgiving so that our associates can celebrate the holiday with their family and friends," Jess Calyton, a Patagonia spokesperson, wrote in a statement to The Huffington Post. "This has been our tradition."
