Whitney Rogers started this petition to Best Buy and

Contrary to Best Buy's new holiday commercial best is only in its name. Best Buy's "best mom ever" won't even see her high school son, who picked up a part time job to save for college, across the dinner table because all employees are expected to work Thanksgiving day 2014.

Best Buy announced that it will be opening stores at 5pm on Thanksgiving Day and stay open until 1am on Black Friday.

Thanksgiving should be a day spent with family. Forcing your employees to work 8 hours, or at all, on Thanksgiving day robs your employees and their families of an important holiday. Your employees deserve the day off, just the same as your corporate big wigs that have announced that all hourly in-store employees will be required to work Thanksgiving 2014.

Join me in calling Best Buy not to open a single store on Thanksgiving day. Let black friday actually be black friday.

Join me in not shopping on Thanksgiving day 2014 and let all stores who decide to open anyways suffer a tremendous loss.
