Target, Walmart, Kohl’s and Sears are among the long list of retailers facing a consumer backlash on Change.org over “Black Friday creep” following Walmart’s announcement yesterday that it would open its doors at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving evening.

In the past week, more than 20 new petitions have been created on Change.org calling on retailers to allow families to spend Thanksgiving together and stick to Black Friday opening times.

Last November, more than 200,000 people joined Target employee Anthony Hardwick’s Change.org petition calling on Target to save Thanksgiving for its employees, their families and consumers by opening on Black Friday instead of on Thanksgiving itself. In addition to receiving national media coverage, Hardwick’s petition inspired more than 150 other Change.org petitions asking major retailers to save Thanksgiving and put employees and families first.
