If you’ve ever worked retail, you know that Black Friday is one of the worst days of the year. And, in recent years, Black Friday has slowly but surely crept its way into Thanksgiving.
While everyone is supposed to be stuffing their face and spending time with family and friends, some people are out shopping and trying to snag deals, requiring retail workers to be on the job.
Kenwood Towne Centre officials have decided that they are putting a full stop to the Black Friday creep, meaning one of the largest malls in Cincinnati will be closed on Thanksgiving.
The mall announced in October that its doors would stay closed on turkey day.
“We hope this will allow our tenants, shoppers and employees to spend more time with friends, family and loved ones,” officials wrote in a Facebook post.
If you’re a glutton for good deals, don’t worry: Black Friday is still on and Kenwood Towne Centre will be opening at 9 a.m. Friday, Nov. 26. The mall’s extended holiday hours begin Dec. 10 and run through Christmas Eve.
Kenwood Towne Centre is located at 7875 Montgomery Road, Kenwood. Find more information at kenwoodtownecentre.com.
