DALLAS, Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Centennial Real Estate wants to help renew the tradition of families spending Thanksgiving together and rekindle the magic of Black Friday as the official start of the holiday shopping season, so its collection of seven regional shopping centers in six states will be closed on Thanksgiving.
"Not only does this allow for families to be together on Thanksgiving, but it brings back the excitement that has historically surrounded the busiest shopping day of the year. This decision is an example of our commitment to the communities we serve, and to offer shopping experiences centered on what uniquely matters to them," said Steven Levin, CEO of Centennial Real Estate. "Family and tradition matter to our customers, and we want to support those values by encouraging our shoppers, employees and communities to celebrate a traditional holiday. Thanksgiving is for sharing. Black Friday is for shopping."
Many of Centennial's stores will tantalize shoppers with special Black Friday deals on the hottest, high-demand products of the season. The company will give away a $2,500 Holiday Shopping Spree to a lucky shopper and offer special entertainment and refreshments on what has traditionally been the biggest shopping day of the year.
"Holidays are special and deserve to be cherished one at a time," said Colleen Heydon, Director, National Marketing. "That's why we're wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving by encouraging them to spend the holiday with friends and family. We'll follow that tradition with absolutely the most magical holiday shopping season our malls can provide. Black Friday will be filled with enticements that will rekindle the traditional excitement and sparkle of the holiday shopping season."
While malls officially open at 6:00am on Friday, Centennial will accommodate and support departments stores, theaters, restaurants and those tenants that elect to hold different operating hours, including stores that wish to open on Thanksgiving.
