Target in Westfield Wheaton is opening at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. This is the earliest that the nationwide chain has ever opened its stores for Black Friday shopping.
Around the country, some Target employees and their family members are protesting the "Thanksgiving Creep" and have started petitions online, asking the store to return to a Friday morning opening time.
The rest of the mall stores in Westfield Wheaton will be opening at midnight. This is the second year that Westfield has scheduled a midnight opening. In 2010, mall stores opened at 5 a.m.
