CBL Properties, which owns four St. Louis area malls and dozens more around the country, said its malls will close on Thanksgiving Day, just as they did a year ago.
Companywide, CBL owns 78 enclosed, outlet and open-air retail centers and manages an additional 14 retail center properties for third parties.
Department stores and other retailers with exterior mall entrances will have the option to be open on Thursday.
But access to mall common areas will be restricted until 6 a.m. November 24.
For the second consecutive year, one of the Charleston region's leading shopping centers is following the lead of many national retailers and closing on Thanksgiving Day.
But the rise of e-commerce has challenged brick-and-mortar stores in recent years.
The publication also reported that analysts predict that the idea of Black Friday will eventually diminish.
