Save Thanksgiving From this 9pm Black Friday Opening @ Target Corporation

Following Anthony Hardwick's Petition from last year about Target opening @ 12am for Black Friday; now Target wants a 9pm opening!?!? 3 hours earlier from last year. This can't continue!

It's unfair to force employees to work Thanksgiving night. A 9pm opening robs the hourly and in-store salary workers of time off with their families on Thanksgiving Day. By opening the doors at 9pm, Target is requiring team members to be in the store by 8p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.

A full holiday with family is not just for the elite of this nation — all Americans should be able to break bread with loved ones and get a good night’s rest on Thanksgiving. 

Black Friday means FRIDAY!!

Target
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Target Corportation

Push back the Black Friday opening hour back to 5am

A full holiday with family is not just for the elite of this nation — all Americans should be able to break bread with loved ones and get a good night’s rest on Thanksgiving.

Black Friday means FRIDAY!!

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Family time is more important than money. Don't be so greedy! And don't ever try to advertise as a company that supports families if you won't let them be together on Thanksgiving.

      This is selfishness!

      I'm sure they already have enough money! They're just being greedy!

      Now that "Black Friday Deals" happen all month long, can we please get back to letting people celebrate with their families for one Thursday?
