62 shopping malls to close for Thanksgiving 2017

CBL Properties, a major mall operator based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, plans to close dozens of shopping malls for Thanksgiving.

The decision comes after many retailers have also announced they won’t open on the holiday so that employees can spend it with their family and friends.

“The support that we received last year when we made this decision was overwhelmingly positive,” said Stephen Lebovitz, President and CEO, CBL Properties, “It is based on this feedback from our retail partners, employees of CBL and retailers at our properties, as well as the customers in our markets that we made the decision to again close our centers on Thanksgiving Day.”

Department stores, movie theaters, restaurants and retailers with exterior mall entrances will have the option to open their stores on Thanksgiving Day.

However, access to mall common areas will be restricted until 6 a.m. on Black Friday.
