School of Business professor available to discuss retail stores opening Thanksgiving Thursday for holiday sales

Wal-Mart, Target, Sears and Toys R Us are among the U.S. retail stores who have announced plans to open on Thanksgiving night, drawing harsh criticism from store workers who want the stores to remain closed until early Friday.

David Cadden, of Cheshire, a professor of management in the Entrepreneurship and Strategy Department of the Quinnipiac University School of Business, is available to comment on this issue.

“The start of the post-Thanksgiving holiday sales creeping up earlier and earlier each year is causing conflict for the employees,” Cadden said. “Opening on Thanksgiving destroys peoples’ holidays. This year, we’re seeing more and more pushback from employees. They’re saying, ‘Enough is enough.”

To speak to Cadden on Wednesday, Nov. 21 or Friday, Nov. 23, please call John Morgan, associate vice president for public relations, at 203-206-4449.
