So much for being home for the holidays.
A shopping mall in upstate New York has apparently threatened to fine retailers the insane sum of $200 an hour if they aren’t open at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving.
Walden Galleria, the Buffalo mall in question, has more than 200 stores, and the mall apparently revealed the fine in a meeting of store managers last week. This year marks the first that Walden Galleria is opening in the middle of Thanksgiving, managers told The Huffington Post.
