PLYMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — Many stores are planning to be open on Thanksgiving, but the owner of a Sears store in New Hampshire says her store is staying closed.

Franchise owner Holly Cassiano in Plymouth tells WMUR-TV (http://bit.ly/1ghrTuG) said she had one reaction when the Sears corporate office told her she had to be open on Thursday: anger.

She said she's not going to let corporate retailers rule over family values on the holiday. She sent a letter to Sears with her reasons for staying closed, but hasn't heard back yet.

Cassiano says she values her employees enough that she wouldn't have them have to work on a day that's meant to be spent with family.

She plans to open at 6 a.m. on Black Friday.
