The Mall of America says Thanksgiving is for family, and that's why they're closing for the holiday this year.
The mall has been open for early deal hunters on Thanksgiving Day since 2012, but this year, mall leaders are bucking that trend, saying employees should be with their families instead.
The Mall of America will reopen to shoppers at 5 a.m. on Black Friday.
Given the fact that M.O.A. is the largest shopping mall in the country, many are wondering if this could signal the start of a trend.
