Respect your employees by not opening at midnight on Black Friday

    1. Petition by

      Michael Davis

      Arlington, WA

I am outraged that I am going to be forced to cut my holiday short with my family, so I can bow down to the company and consumers that buy our products. My family time is important to me, and I feel exploited by this decision. Please keep your employees in mind when making such decisions in the future. Even if you are not a Best Buy employee; please sign in agreement that Thanksgiving is a time for family and not shopping.

      Hi friends,
      I am closing this petition. I would like to urge you to sign the more popular petition regarding Best Buy's midnight opening on Black Friday. http://chn.ge/uZJTz4
      This petition has gained media attention and a larger following. It is important that we stand united on our opposition of ruining the Thanksgiving for retail employees. I have decided to close my petition in hopes that you will help spread the message that opening at midnight is a short-sighted business decision that leads to employee resentment.
      Again, please sign http://chn.ge/uZJTz4, it preaches the same message that you already support and comes with thousands of like minded individuals.
      Thanks again

      Greed destroyed - past tense - destroyed this country, leave our families our out of it. If that doesn't work then retail employees just need to say "we aren't going to show up for work. You can end this." Unionize people.

      I am not a Best Buy employee, nor am I employed by any retailer. The Christmas shopping season and Black Friday in particular have become increasingly insane over the years. I ask you to restore sanity to the holidays by allowing your employees to enjoy Thanksgiving with their families and allow them time to rest after feasting and celebrating. I also fear the safety hazards which may arise by encouraging consumers to begin shopping in the middle of the night, when they are not well rested. Please be sensitive to the humans involved, honor the Thanksgiving holiday, and don't open your doors until morning!

      The respect to the employees is more important than profits for your CEO's.
