Outrage Over Kmart's Thanksgiving Decision

 
Outrage Over Kmart's Thanksgiving Decision
Posted Wednesday, November 6th 2013 @ 6pm  by KFBK News - Tim Lantz

Kmart is trying to get a jump on the Black Friday sales this year.

Kmart stores will open very early Thanksgiving Day and that's upset some employees and customers alike.

If you thought Black Friday couldn't get any crazier, then think again. Kmart executives say the doors at all their stores will open on Thanksgiving Day at 6 a.m. and stay open for 41 hours straight.

As you might expect, that's not sitting well with some employees who will have to work on Thanksgiving, but some customers have gone to Facebook to bash Kmart for the decision.

The company is coming right back with a post which reads, "Kmart is staffing with volunteers and seasonal associates wherever possible. This gives associates the opportunity to make some additional money this holiday season."

Kmart's parent company, Sears, will open at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving.
