Close Early on Thanksgiving

This petition had 2,130 supporters


  1. Over the past 20 years, I have watched my mom leave Thanksgiving dinner early to work overnight to prepare for Black Friday. I have watched her work late on Christmas eve, and missed her during numerous family holidays. However, there was always a time she would be able to stop and enjoy the holiday with the family.
  2. This year, Kmart has taken a different approach. The store will be open from 6AM on Thanksgiving until 11pm Black Friday, forcing employees to work split shifts. These unecessarily long hours force individuals to miss spending time with their families and loved ones.
  3. With lives that are continously busier and busier, it is more important now than ever to put an end to this before we no longer have holidays. Kmart, the sales can wait. Close your store earlier on Thanksgiving to allow people to spend time with their families.
