Who's Respecting the Bird this year?

It seems that last year, for the first time, quite a few of us put up a big stink about stores opening on Thanksgiving day. The one day each year that we're supposed to spend with friends and family being thankful for what we have, is slowly turning into a day of, eat-a-quick-lunch, stand-in-line and buy-more-things! 

Sadly, if you like to shop and get good deals, Thanksgiving may be the best day for you to do it this year. Even worse, it means many of the people who work the at the stores open on Thanksgiving, whether or not they want to be there, have to be there too.

This really bums us out and according to the newest Change.org Petition, we're not the only ones!

According to today's report in Reuters, there are quite a number of stores on Tom Turkey's naughty list, but we wanted to highlight the stores that are taking a stand! So...when you're thinking of places to shop AFTER Thanksgiving, maybe you can start here:
  • Nordstrom
  • Costco
  • RadioShack
  • Cabela's
  • L.L. Bean
  • REI

Does this list seem a little short to you? If you have a store to add to this list - that is opening at a reasonable time on Black Friday (not so early that employees have to sleep/be in store on Thanksgiving day), please feel free to include it in the comments and we'll keep adding to this post as we hear from you!

A big THANK YOU to the stores that are Respecting the Bird this year!
