The holiday shopping season is officially starting earlier this year at The Colony Square Mall
There are 28 stores opening at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Night, 8 more stores opening at midnight and the rest of the stores will be open by 6 a.m. on Black Friday. The extended hours are so you can grab all your holiday deals.
“It really varies from retailer to retailer, some of them will have door busters, that are just for a couple of hours on Black Friday, some will have the same deal all weekend long,” explained Marketing Coordinator at Colony Square Mall, Kevin Pinson. “So I would really just suggest, do your homework of your favorite retailers, you could check out website or their website,
Even though it may be difficult to keep track of which stores open when, Pinson believes the consumer appreciates the earlier and longer hours.
"Every year they try a little bit earlier opening and the shoppers respond to that, so I think they like to come in here early and get the good deals, right after Thanksgiving, so we will see this year with the 8 p.m. opening for how it goes.”
A complete list of all the opening times for stores within the mall can be found on its website at Colonysquaremall.com.
