More than 190,000 people from across America have joined an explosive campaign on Change.org in the past week calling on popular retailer Target to reverse its decision to open late Thanksgiving night for pre-Black Friday shopping and instead allow workers to spend the holiday with family.
The explosive campaign on Change.org was launched by Anthony Hardwick, a Target employee in Omaha, NE, after he learned the company’s management had moved the standard “Black Friday” opening time up from 5 a.m. Friday to midnight on Thanksgiving. The new opening time will require employees to arrive at work no later than 11 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
