Stores Add To Thanksgiving Hours

Whine, whine, and more whine. We should be thankful stores are opening sooner for our convenience..If that bothers a shopper, then go when it’s comfortable for you. If that bothers an employee, remember who signs your paycheck.

As stores up the ante with earlier holiday hours that creep into Thanksgiving night, Black Friday is turning into Black Thursday, and some shoppers and employees aren’t happy about it.

•Toys R Us said Monday that it will open at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving, an hour earlier than last year and the earliest of any retailer so far this year.

•Walmart will open at 10 p.m., two hours ahead of last year’s midnight opening.

•Other stores, including Target, Macy’s, Best Buy and Kohl’s, will open at midnight.

Anthony Hardwick, a cart attendant at a Target in Omaha, started a campaign to protest the decision to open at midnight, four hours earlier than last year. His petition, on Change.org, calls for Target to push its opening to 5 a.m. Friday. The petition had 62,000 signatures as of late Monday.
