LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Using the hashtag #MakeThanksgivingYours, the owners of Fayette Mall announced on Wednesday that the shopping center will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, and will open at 6:00 a.m. on Black Friday, November 25.
“We want to bring back the excitement of Black Friday shopping as the true start of the holiday shopping season and allow our employees, retailers, and shoppers to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with their families,” said Stephen Lebovitz, President and CEO, CBL & Associates Properties, Inc. “After evaluating feedback from our mall employees, retail partners, and input from our shoppers we determined that this was the best decision for our properties.”
Department stores, movie theaters, and retailers with exterior mall entrances will have the option to open their stores on Thursday. Access to mall common areas, however, will be restricted until Friday.
