MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The owner of Dakota Square Mall in Minot plans to close the facility on Thanksgiving.

The move mirrors other retailers around the country including the Mall of America in Minnesota that are taking a stand against the growing trend of Thanksgiving shopping.

Dakota Square mall movie theaters and retailers will have the option of opening on Thanksgiving Thursday if they have exterior entrances. Otherwise, the mall will be closed until 6 a.m. Friday.

The day after Thanksgiving is generally known as Black Friday, the kickoff to the holiday shopping season and the busiest shopping day of the year.
