Mall Of America Declares They'll Be Closed On Thanksgiving

October 5, 2016
The trend in recent years has been for more and more stores to be open on Thanksgiving. Some open at 8pm, and some are even open all day.

The Mall of America in Minneapolis has announced they'll definitely be closed on Thanksgiving this year. Individual stores still have the option to open, but they're being encouraged not to. This affects 1200 employees that work for the mall. If all the stores closed too then another 13,000 people would get to spend the holidays with their families.

None of this trumps REI who announced last year they would be closed ON Black Friday.
