Park Meadows reports record Black Friday turnout

State's largest indoor mall says crowd beat all prior counts for occasion

Posted

The Park Meadows mall opened its doors early on the morning of Nov. 23, welcoming shoppers to the mall's biggest day of the year — Black Friday.

Pam Kelly, general manager of the mall, said this year's Black Friday turnout was the largest the mall had ever seen. The National Retail Federation, a national retail advocacy group, said sales numbers for the holiday season — November and December — are expected to rise by 3.6 percent. Kelly pointed to the unseasonably warm weather as another contributor to bringing people out to the mall following the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Park Meadows mall brings in about $200 million in sales revenue during the months of November and December, which accounts for about a quarter of the mall's annual sales revenues.

With the addition of some new stores, like the Amazon 4-Star, a gift-friendly store with a plethora of various curated items, shoppers were eager to get out and begin the holiday shopping season.
