Are Stores Facing Thanksgiving Rebellion?

Stores like Walmart, Sears, Kmart, the Gap, and Target may be crowing to consumers about their extra shopping hours, but seems like many of their associates would actually prefer to be eating turkey with loved ones.

Change.org, which last year says its collected some 200,000 signatures in an effort to coax Target to protect the sanctity of pumpkin pie, says its got 20 new petitions “Save Thanksgiving” petitions going.

“Building off of the incredible energy we saw around Black Friday opening times on Change.org last year, it’s remarkable to see so many employees and consumers calling on retailers once again to ‘Save Thanksgiving,’” the group says in a release announcing the new effort.
