CherryVale Mall announced today they will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.

Steven Lebovitz, President, and CEO of CBL properties said the support the CherryVale Mall received when they made the announcement last year was "overwhelmingly positive" which led to them to make the "decision to again close our centers on Thanksgiving Day" in a press release.

However, all stores with exterior CherryVale Mall entrances, such as Sears, JCPenney, Bergner's and Macy's will have the option to remain open on Thanksgiving.

The mall will remain closed until 6 a.m. Friday, November 24.
