HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Turtle Creek Mall has joined a long list of malls and retail stores closing on Thanksgiving Day. 

This is not the first time the mall has closed on Thanksgiving. The mall made the decision to close last year as well so employees could spend more time with their families.

In the past few years, many businesses have extended their Black Friday sales to include the holiday in hopes of gaining more holiday profit. 

CBL Properties, the owner and manager of Turtle Creek Mall, announced in a news release that their regional shopping centers will close for the holiday and reopen at 6:00 a.m. on Black Friday. 

"The support that we received last year when we made this decision was overwhelmingly positive,” said Stephen Lebovitz, President and CEO, CBL Properties, “It is based on this feedback from our retail partners, employees of CBL and retailers at our properties, as well as the customers in our markets that we made the decision to again close our centers on Thanksgiving Day."

Department stores, movie theaters and retailers with exterior mall entrances will have the option to open their stores on Thursday, according to Lebovitz.

Access to mall common areas will be restricted until 6:00 a.m. on Friday.
