NEW YORK (AP) — Mall of America, the nation’s largest shopping mall anchored  is making a bold move  against the growing trend of Thanksgiving shopping and will be closed on the turkey feast this year.

The center, based in Bloomington, Minnesota, has been open on Thanksgiving since 2012.

But mall officials told The Associated Press it wants to offer workers time with their families.

The movement will affect over ten thousand workers.

The mall will re-open at 5 a.m. on the Friday after Thanksgiving
