Merry McChristmas! McDonald's to open Dec. 25

Posted: Updated:

Ronald McDonald will be working this Christmas Day. All company owned McDonald's locations will be open Dec. 25, and it is pushing franchise owners to do the same.

According to a report by Advertising Age, the Company saw a big boost in business by urging franchises to stay open Thanksgiving. It's hoping that by being open Christmas it can boost sales in December.

Employees will only be scheduled on the holiday if they volunteer. However, according to McDonald's policy, they won't be given holiday pay.
