Target begins Black Friday deals at controversial time

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Target will start Black Friday deals earlier than ever. Doors will open at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving night.

That time is the earliest the store has ever started its Black Friday sales. But the move is already causing controversy.

Twenty petitions on change.org called on the retailer to change it's plan, like this one:

Dear G**** S*********,

Every year the opening time gets pushed up more and more.

Midnight last year was pushing it. How can you expect workers to spend time with family and then stay up all night? It's inhumane and inconsiderate.

You are most likely tucked away in bed while workers are in the stores pushing back a rabid crowd of shoppers trying to get an iPod.

A 9 p.m. opening disgusts me and symbolizes everything that is wrong with this country.

Give thanksgiving back to families.
