Stop the opening of your store on Thanksgiving Night or Midnight Friday.

The whole day of Thanksgiving is important to be spent with family and loved ones. You making the decision to open your stores at midnight FORCES many people to make a decision between relaxing with family or missing good deals at your store. the competition of stores to open first has gotten so out of hand, it forces me to ask what will be next? How about not observing Thanksgiving altogether and open stores for people to go shopping instead? What kind of family values and tradition are you retail stores trying to begin? I think it feels more like you are trying to ruin them instead. By no means is your company the only one doing wrong here, Target, BestBuy and WalMart are also planning a night before opening, but Kohl's I look to you to set a better example. Your store is at the top of my list on Black Friday morning, it is a good store with great taste, therefore I hold you to higher standards, set a good example for these other stores because I can tell you right now, I for one am now boycotting even going in on Friday morning, why should I if everyone already took the "best" deals the night before? Instead I will take my shopping else where, a place where I will be part of the tradition of doors opening Black Friday morning! Please consider this petition, really think about it and set a better example for more to hopefully follow, I can say petitions will be going out to all those stores as well.

Stop the opening of your store on Thanksgiving Night or Midnight Friday.

      I am signing because if I worked at Kohl's, or one of my family members did, I would be very angry if we were required to work on Thanksgiving. There are very few days that are centered around the family - people don't belong shopping on Thanksgiving. I won't be there, and I'm seriously considering not shopping there on Black Friday either. What's truly important? FAMILY. NOT MONEY.

      Thanksgiving is a traditional holiday that we hold on to where families gather together to give thanks for all the blessings they have received throughout the year. It is also a time to get together with family that live too far away to see on a regular basis. To take the one special day that our ancestors felt it necessary to make special is taking away our heritage. Its a day to give thanks and learn whats most important in life. People to volunteer to give back to the less unfortunate.

      Kohls: if you care for the children and give to charity, then keep the families home from working and shopping give them the time to spend with family and love ones

      I think it's low class to open on Thanksgiving.
