Petition Closed

To every major retailer with Thursday night Black Friday sales... this HAS to stop. Please bring back the 4am Friday sales! Cyber deals are a great addition, but every year the Black Friday sales are started earlier and earlier. These sales are intruding on our Thanksgiving traditions, taking our family members from us or taking us from our precious family time. Shoppers feel the need to choose between continuing Thanksgiving evening traditions and those Black Friday shopping traditions. We shouldn't have to choose. Last year, I lost friends and family members at 8pm. This year, with the new ads coming out and the start times being advertised, it appears I will be losing family members at 6 and 7pm. If these sales don't stop getting earlier and earlier, we will soon lose our Thanksgiving holiday. This holiday is a vital tradition for American families as many of us rely heavily on this time to see and spend time with family members we don't normally get to see. Please, sign this petition and let us SAVE THANKSGIVING!!! Let's put the Friday back in Black Friday!!!
