Mall of America is tightening its Black Friday policies and will bar unaccompanied minors from the megamall all day Friday, Nov.23.
Despite retailers seeking to persuade more people to spend merrily, children younger than 16 who are not with an adult 21 or older will not be welcomed at the Mall of America on Thanksgiving night or Black Friday. It is also same during the week between Christmas and New Year's reported by the Pioneer Press.
The mall's normal policy is to restrict unaccompanied teenagers on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Unaccompanied teens must provide proof of their age with government-issued identification, reported by the Star Tribune.
