by Katie Sloan

Chattanooga, Tenn. — Chattanooga-based CBL & Associates has announced that the company’s portfolio of shopping centers will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.

The centers will reopen at 6:00 am on Black Friday, Nov. 25. Department stores, movie theaters, restaurants and retailers with exterior mall entrances will have the option to open their stores on Thursday, but mall common areas will have restricted access until Friday.

“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,” says Stephen Lebovitz, president and CEO of CBL & Associates Properties Inc. “After evaluating feedback from our mall employees and retail partners as well as input from our shoppers, we determined that this was the best decision for our properties.”
