Albany- On Wednesday it will business as usual at the Albany Applebees, but don't look for any of their commercials on TV...there won't be any.

"There will be no national advertising on September eleventh. It's just our way of honoring folks that need to be honored," says General Manager Craig Birch.

While some stores will keep regular hours on September eleventh, they are encouraging employees to wear red, white, and blue. Clothing store TJ Maxx isn't even opening their doors until noon.

"It makes me feel real good. Actually we had lives lost on September eleventh; we had buyers on one of the planes," adds Assistant Manager Carla Sellars.

Kmart will not open until ten a.m. and Home Depot will have a moment of silence at 8:45 - around the time the first plane crashed.

"If an employee is with a customer just say look ma'am this is going on so if you could just bear with us for one minute," adds Assistant Store Manager Jim King.

Lowes employees will dress in patriotic colors and workers at Red Lobster will wear special badges to commemorate the day. For these businesses Wednesday will be a day of remembrance and not just sales.
