When Black Friday kicked off at the Meadowbrook Mall on Thanksgiving night, shoppers had more than just a few new permanent stores in Hibbett Sports and HD Truck Center. As is often the case, the retail facility has a few new offerings for the holiday season.
 
“It’s always great to have special items that you only can find during the holiday  season that allows you to find that unique gift for the person who may be hard to buy for or the person who looks for that gift each year,” said Meadowbrook Mall Property Manager Marcello Lalalma. “We think we’ve added a few good holiday offerings people will like and they’re familiar names.”
 
This year, there are a trio of holiday tenants. All of them have been there in the past. The businesses include Hickory Farms, Personalized Ornaments, and Go! Calendards Games & Toys. 
 
“Hickory Farms is definitely the mainstay of the bunch and it’s the one where people love their products,” said Lalama. “It’s the one holiday business people ask about year in and year out.”
 
The number of holiday businesses aren’t as high as usual. The reason for that is that the typical holiday space utilizes kiosk space in the mall. Most of that space is already utilized.
 
As for the holiday season, things are going great, according to Lalama. He said the crowds that gathered on Thanksgiving evening was one of the biggest ever.
 
“It was great because we definitely saw larger crowds than previous years,” said Lalama. “It usually takes time to build up, but at 6 p.m. it was already packed and the crowd was still in place way into the night.”
