EDISON, N.J. (AP) - A worker at a New Jersey mall believes opening for shoppers on Thanksgiving is for the birds.

Anthony Rivera has started an online petition opposed to the Simon Property Group opening the Menlo Park Mall in Edison and other properties at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving. Rivera believes 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. on the day after, Black Friday, is more reasonable.

Rivera tells the Home News Tribune he feels it's one step closer to everyone working on every holiday. Rivera says he's aware he could lose his job.

Simon Property Group spokesman Les Morris says the extended holiday hours are designed to meet customer needs for greater flexibility.

The Macy's store in the mall will open at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving. But the Nordstrom store won't open until Friday.
