Hardwick launched a petition asking Target department stores to drop plans to open at midnight on Thanksgiving Day , when he learned of the chain's plans to have employees report to work at 11 p.m. Thanksgiving Day to work 10-hour overnight shifts. Merchants are competing for shoppers on a weekend that can be critical for their annual sales and profits, and a growing number fear opening at 4 a.m. or 5 a.m., as they have in recent years, may be too late in this challenging economy(AP Photo/Nati Harnik)
