SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An Upstate mall will shut its doors so shoppers will spend time with their families on Thanksgiving Day.

Westgate Mall in Spartanburg has made the decision to close on Thanksgiving this year, and reopen the following day at 6 a.m. for Black Friday shopping.

The mall released the following statement on the scheduled closing, on their website:

"Dear Shopper,

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. Gone are the days of waking before dawn to hunt for deals and doorbusters. Well, not this year.

We're happy to announce that our malls will be closed this year on Thanksgiving and will open for Black Friday at 6 a.m. We want you to spend Thanksgiving with family and friends and come fresh and excited to spend Black Friday with us. So enjoy that extra plate of pie at dinner, take a long afternoon nap, set your alarm clock and wake up with us to bring back the magic of Black Friday.

Have a happy Thanksgiving. We'll see you Friday.

Sincerely,

Stephen Lebovitz, President &CEO, CBL & Associates Properties, Inc.
