Tell Target To Save Thanksgiving

November 15, 2011 by staff 

Tell Target To Save Thanksgiving, For Anthony Hardwick, Thanksgiving has special meaning. Last year, he proposed to his girlfriend, Denise, in front of her whole family during the holiday.

This year though, Hardwick will be working. A part-time employee at Target in Omaha, Neb., he is scheduled to start his 10-hour shift at 11 p.m. In order to make it through the night, he’ll need to sleep on Thanksgiving Day.

“My fiancĂ©e is sad because I was supposed to have Thanksgiving dinner with her family, and talk about wedding plans,” he said.

Hardwick started an online petition in the hope that Target would push the store opening back to Friday to allow workers to spend more time with family.

“It’s kind of a raw deal,” he said.

Hardwick created the petition, entitled “Tell Target to Save Thanksgiving,” through the online advocacy site, which collected more than 80,000 signatures as of Tuesday.
