Blain’s Farm and Fleet Stores to Close Thanksgiving Day and Re-open Black Friday, November 25th, at 6:00AM. Wishing Everyone a Safe and Happy Holiday!
Blain’s Farm and Fleet stores will close for business on Thanksgiving Day and reopen on Black Friday, November 25th, at 6:00AM. We wish all our associates, friends and their families a safe and happy holiday.
“Family always comes first at Blain’s Farm and Fleet and for 61-years, our stores have always closed to allow our associates a joyful Thanksgiving Day with their families,” says Jane Blain Gilbertson, CEO and President of Blain’s Farm and Fleet. “I’m honored to continue the traditions started by dad, Bert Blain and uncle Claude Blain to remain closed on Thanksgiving Day. Keeping our doors closed on holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas is a way to thank our 4,200 associates and their families who work so hard year-round for our company and the communities we serve. Our competitors may open their doors on Thanksgiving Day, but we hope our customers understand and appreciate that we honor our past, our traditions, our associates and our community as we truly have so much to be thankful for.”
Founded in 1955, Blain’s Farm & Fleet stores are specialty discount retailers with 38 locations throughout Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin. The company remains steadfast in its commitment to offering customers high quality products, competitive prices and reliable service. Visit www.farmandfleet.com.
