Imagine telling your family that this Thanksgiving mom, dad, son, daughter, brother or sister will have to take that turkey to go, because their employer decided to open right at Thanksgiving dinner time for 26 straight hours. Sears Holdings is planning on opening at 8:00 pm on Thanksgiving Day and not close until 10:00 PM on Black Friday. Employees were not notified until recently. Sears is betting that longer hours instead of a good marketing strategy will turn their sales around. Please sign this petition in order to persuade Sears to respect the family time of their hard working employees by going back to a 5:00 am Black Friday opening. Thank you.

      I am sick and tired of the endless shopping hype and erosion of any type of holiday family time.

      Because it's the right thing to do. I encourage everyone I know to stay way from ALL stores that open Thanksgiving. corporate greed is the bottom line. Disgusting and shameful. set an example rather than be sheep and followers.

      It's inethical to demand that workers work on the one day that people should be with their families and it shouldn't be optional. If people can't shop on all other days then the workers shouldn't have to be punished in the name of a big sale.

      Employees work hard all year. They deserve this time with their families.
