Lime Ridge Mall has a battle plan for keeping shoppers at home on Black Friday.
On Nov. 23, a day in which U.S. retailers have large sales to kick off the Christmas shopping season, Lime Ridge will be opening at 7 a.m. to kick off a day of promotions and sales.
Cadillac Fairview Malls, which owns Lime Ridge, said in a press release that a recent survey by Deloitte indicated that close to 40 per cent of Ontario residents plan to cross-border shop this upcoming holiday season.
“Our retail sector has to work hard to remain competitive and keep shoppers north of the border,” said Martin Wray of Cadillac Fairview. “Through initiatives like Black Friday, Cadillac Fairview is providing better access for consumers, and generally creating retail environments to keep people shopping locally.”
