The megamall notified employees and tenants that it is reversing course this year and will close down as many of its operations as possible on the holiday, Star Tribune reports. Nickelodeon Universe and the movie theaters will be closed for Thanksgiving for the first time in its 24-year history.
"We're excited to give this day back to our employees so they can celebrate with their families," vice president of marketing and business development.
