The Meridian Mall will be closed for Thanksgiving this year.    The decision by the mall's owner, Tennessee based CBL & Associates Properties, was made this month after receiving feedback from employees, customers and retailers.

The mall will open on Black Friday at 6 a.m.  While the mall itself will be closed, any retailer with doors that open out onto the mall's exterior can choose to open on Thanksgiving.

Last year, the Meridian Mall opened at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving.  Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
