Open at 5am on Black Friday

I have been with my husband for the past 11 years and he has worked for one retail business or another over the years. This the first Thanksgiving that is being ruined by his job. HHGregg and many other retailers are opening at midnight or earlier this year. In my opinion it is all about greed. If all retailers would open at 5am, their employees and their families will be able to enjoy Thanksgiving together.

    1. Opening Even Earlier

      This year they will be opening even earlier and making them work even longer shift. There is a possiblity of people work almost 24 hours. That is not right. This is going to cause people to sleep on the roads and possible cause major accidents. Plus I know what it is doing to the moral at my husbands store. Yet again Thanksgiving is ruined because of a greedy CEO, who will be where on Thanksgiving....with his family not at a store. Even if you don't sign the petition please boycott Blackfriday. If no one is shopping this will be the last year of this awful day.

      If people would stay home and stop going to the stores, they would stop opening so early. Family is becoming non exsisting because its all about the gifts. Who are you buying the gifts for? YOUR FAMILY!!! I'm sure they would rather you stay around witht hem instead of rushing out to get in line to buy them something. I'll take the quality time over a gift ANY DAY OF THE WEEK. This country is sick in the mind to choose shopping over family. Even if you don't have a family. Whoever you are buying gifts for would love for you to hang out with them. Don't buy the cop out that HH Gregg is selling.."It's for those who are bored after they eat and want to get started" BORED? Really....translation="It's for greedy ass americans who would rather shop than be with thier family"

      I think holidays are important and I believe the Black Friday shopping frenzy is going too far by cutting into the family time and traditions. It seems that nothing is sacred anymore...it's all becoming a blurr driven by consumerism.

      Because I think it's a disgrace to have your employees have to be at work at midnight!

      I will miss having my son and his wife over for Thanksgiving dinner this year. We are being deprived of family time because HHGregg obviously values profits more than its employees.
