West Acres Shopping Center will be buzzing Black Friday with 31 stores opening at 12 midnight. In addition, 20 stores will be opening throughout the night before the mall officially opens at 7 am. Doors will open around 11 pm on Thanksgiving to allow customers to come in from the cold and wait for the stores to open at midnight.
"Last year 10 stores opened at midnight to a crowd of excited customers", commented Alissa Sorum, Marketing Director at Acres. "With 31 stores choosing to open at midnight this year, eager Black Friday shoppers will have plenty of deals to score. Some coffee and food vendors will also be open early."
Customers shopping early have an opportunity to win West Acres Mall Cards. Beginning at 11:30pm, the first 100 people to check in on their phones at West Acres via Facebook can win a $20 Mall Card. To claim their prize, customers must show their check-in to a representative at the Mall Card center located near the Food Court.
