More than 60 malls across America will be closed on Thanksgiving — here's the full list

CBL Properties is taking a stand against Black Friday.

For the second year in a row, the mall operator that manages 62 malls across the country will close all of its locations for the entirety of Thanksgiving Day, according to a letter from its CEOStephen Lebovitz.

Lebovitz told CNBC that his company had "such overwhelming support from last year's decision," they felt "validated."

The move is in response to "Black Friday creep," which sees retailers opening earlier and earlier every year on Thanksgiving to capture crowds for "doorbuster" sales. CBL is marketing its move with the #makeThanksgivingyours hashtag.
