Where to Holiday Shop on Thanksgiving and Black Friday

With the holiday shopping season around the corner, retailers are preparing by rolling out Black Friday deals and sneak peeks of products earlier than usual to make up for a shorter holiday shopping season.

An estimated 165.3 million people likely to shop Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday, according to the annual survey released today by the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights & Analytics.

Thanksgiving falls on Thursday, November 28, which is a week later than last year and makes the shopping season shorter and the demand higher.

For those planning to start their holiday shopping in-store, here's a list of stores and malls throughout South Florida that are open and closed on Thanksgiving.
