CBL malls to close on Thanksgiving

When holiday shopping madness kicks off on Thanksgiving Day, at least 121 malls will be sitting on the sidelines.

CBL Properties has announced that it will repeat the decision it make last year to let employees at malls across 27 states remain home to enjoy the annual feast with family and friends.

“The support that we received last year when we made this decision was overwhelmingly positive,” said CBL president and CEO Stephen Lebovitz. Feedback from retailers, CBL employees, and shoppers led CBL executives to the same decision this year.

CBL is giving the option to department stores, movie theaters, restaurants and other tenants with exterior entrances to open on Thursday, Nov. 23. The remaining areas of the malls will be open for business bright and early on Black Friday, with tenants cleared to open at 6 a.m.
