ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

The Asheville Mall will be closed on Thanksgiving because the CEO said he wants shoppers to “spend Thanksgiving with family and friends and come fresh and excited to spend Black Friday” at the mall.

Below is the letter, titled “Closing to Give Thanks,” from Stephen Lebovitz

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 am. 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 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.

CBL & Associates also owns WestGate Mall in Spartanburg, which will also be closed on Thanksgiving.
