MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Coastal Grand Mall employees will not be reporting to work on Thanksgiving.

According to operating hours listed on the mall’s website, Coastal Grand will be closed Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 24. It will reopen the following day, Black Friday, at 6 a.m.

Coastal Grand Mall is owned by CBL Properties.

Company president and CEO Stephen Lebovitz wrote in a letter posted to Coastal Grand’s website that CBL Properties wants shoppers to spend the holiday with friends and family and “come fresh and excited to spend Black Friday with us.”

“Over the last few years, we’ve watched as the magic of Black Friday has been diminished by an earlier start to the holiday shopping season,” the letter stated. “Gone are the days of waking before dawn to hunt for deals and doorbusters. Well, not this year.”

According to an earlier CNBC report, the only tenants at CBL’s malls allowed to open on Thanksgiving Day, if they so choose, are department stores, movie theaters, restaurants or others that have an exterior entrance.

CBL Properties owns or has a hand in 89 regional malls and open-air shopping centers. The closings will allow about 1,500 mall employees and between 750 and 2,000 retail workers per property to celebrate the holiday, according to the Oct. 12 CNBC report.
