KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Altar'd State, a rapidly growing women's fashion brand with more than 70 boutiques throughout the Midwest, South, MidAtlantic and Northeast regions, announced today that it will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, a tradition that has been in place since its inception in 2009 to allow associates and guests to focus on giving thanks to friends, family and their community.
Despite the shopping trend that has progressively shaped a new kind of Thanksgiving tradition, Altar'd State will continue to avoid the temptation of extended hours and all-day shopping sprees in order to give back to its employees and guests on this special holiday. Since opening its first store seven years ago, Altar'd State has always upheld a positive and family-friendly company culture as paramount to the brand's success and actively pursues opportunities to support its mission to "Stand Out. For Good." in the world.
"Thanksgiving is a day that should be spent reflecting on and appreciating our blessings and we want all of our employees and customers to have the opportunity to enjoy their holiday traditions uninterrupted," said Aaron Walters, Chairman and CEO of Altar'd State. "It's a small measure, but one that we hope will remind everyone of what is truly important and inspire us all to make a positive change in our communities."
During November and December, Altar'd State will be conducting a number of philanthropic efforts to provide food and shelter to individuals across the country as a part of their Mission Monday program that donates 10 percent of net proceeds to local non-profit charities.
