Attention, holiday shoppers! Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota (suburban Minneapolis/St. Paul) will be CLOSED on Thanksgiving Day 2016. It will re-open at 5:00PM on Black Friday, November 26.
Over the past several years, Mall of America has been open on Thanksgiving evening. In 2012, it opened at 12:00AM midnight which technically was still on Black Friday. But in 2013, this was moved up to 8:00PM on Thanksgiving evening. For 2014 and 2015, the mall opened even earlier with Thanksgiving Day shopping beginning at 6:00PM. This has been reversed for 2016. Individual stores, restaurants, and attractions will still have the option of remaining open, however. The Walk to End Hunger, an annual charity walk, will take place on Thanksgiving morning as has been the case in past years.
Mall of America will remain closed on Thursday, November 24. Black Friday sales will begin at 5:00AM on Friday, November 25. Mall of America will feature extended holiday hours throughout the 2016 Christmas shopping season.
