BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - One of South Mississippi's shopping spots is staying closed this Thanksgiving. Edgewater Mall announced Tuesday it will remain closed on Thanksgiving Day. The announcement follows news that several stores and shopping malls across the country will close doors on the holiday.
Mall management says staying closed this year allows more than 1,000 workers to spend time with family and friends. The mall will open at 6 a.m. the Friday after Thanksgiving.
Dillard's will be closed Thanksgiving Day, but other anchor stores could open. That means Thanksgiving Day shoppers may still be able to take advantage of deals at Sears, Belk, and JC Penney.
