A day many shoppers look forward to is the day after Thanksgiving: Black Friday. But this year, Meridian Mall decided to not be open the day of Thanksgiving. Black Friday shoppers will not be able to start shopping early.

According to Pamela Stewart, one of the workers at the mall office, one of the reasons why they were closed was because of staffing issues. It is hard to staff people at kiosks, because not many people work there. Also, statistics have shown that being open on Thanksgiving doesn’t increase profit.

Some stores, such as Yonkers and Macy’s are able to have their own hours because they have an outside entrance.
