Colony Square Mall Marketing Coordinator Kevin Pinson says with a variety of new stores at the mall, shoppers should be able to find something for everyone.
"We have everything from radio controlled toys for the kids to infinity lights, which are a great home decoration," said Pinson. "We have a place selling sweaters and hats and blankets so whatever the person on your list needs, you can probably find it here."
About 25 stores inside Colony Square Mall will be opening on Thanksgiving, including Elder-Beerman and JCPenny's.
"The stores realize that you can't be the late opener for the Thanksgiving shopping weekend cause the folks go get the deals that are available first so you have to match what your competitors do."
Pinson says Santa will also be arriving at the mall on November 23 and will stay until he has to leave on Christmas Eve. Colony Square Mall will open at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving. You can find a complete list of stores opening on Thanksgiving at www.colonysquaremall.com
