Colony Square Mall is staying open late for those last minute shoppers. Marketing Coordinator, Kevin Pinson says the mall hours will be extended starting on Friday.
"Today we are open from 9 a.m.-10 p.m, Saturday 8 a.m.-10 p.m., Sunday 9 a.m.- 8 p.m., 8 a.m.-10 p.m. again on Monday and we do close early on Christmas Eve so that employees can spend time with their families, we’ll be open 9 a.m.-6 p.m. on Christmas Eve," Pinson explained.
The mall will also have extended hours the day after Christmas, but will go back to the normal schedule on December 27. Although Black Friday is considered the busiest shopping day of the year, Pinson says it’s the weekend before Christmas that draws in the most crowds and the best sales.
"That’s when we see the most traffic and the most sales and it’s when shoppers will see a lot of the best bargains as well. So if you’re coming out this weekend, make sure you plan a little extra time, be patient, there will be lines, there will be crowds and if you don’t like the crowds, the best time is to come first thing in the morning or later in the evening right before closing."
Also, if you haven’t had a chance to see Santa, Pinson says he will be at the mall until 4 o’clock on Christmas Eve. For more information, you can go online to wwww.ColonySquareMall.com.
