(KDAL) -- Target employee Casey St. Clair delivered 350,000 online petition signatures to company headquarters in Minneapolis on Monday in her effort to prevent stores from opening Thanksgiving night for the "Black Thursday" holiday shopping kickoff.

The company says all employees working Thursday will receive additional pay, and that hundreds of stores are reporting more volunteers wanting to work than shifts to fill.
