MOA to tighten restrictions on teens during holiday season

| No Comments

All unaccompanied teenagers under age 16 are not allowed in the Mall of America all day on Black Friday, as well as the week between Christmas and New Year's.
The new policy was prompted by an incident last Dec. 27 when fights involving more than 200 teens erupted around the mall, according to the Star Tribune.
These restrictions on teens normally are in place only on Friday and Saturday evenings.
The Mall of America is always busy on Black Friday. According to the Pioneer Press, last year 219,000 people visited the day after Thanksgiving last year.
All of the mall's stores will be open by 6 a.m. on Friday except for Nordstrom's, and over 180 stores are opening by midnight.
Police say that with such a hectic time at the mall, the policy is best for everyone's safety and enjoyment.
