CBL Centers Across the Country Report Positive Sales Over Black Friday Weekend
Amid Reports of Negative National Sales, CBL’s Great Shopping Centers Continue to Attract Shoppers
DOUGLASVILLE, GA – CBL & Associates Properties, Inc. owner and manager of Arbor Place announced today that Black Friday weekend sales and traffic increased over last year. In addition to traditional retailers seeing an uptick in sales, photo sales and visits with Santa Claus are up over last year as well. National retail organizations and news outlets are predicting this positive trend to be maintained for sales nationwide as retailers continue to offer in-store discounts throughout the holiday season.
“The positive sales reports for the Black Friday Weekend from the CBL portfolio are encouraging,” said Stephen Lebovitz, president & chief executive officer of CBL & Associates Properties, Inc. “CBL Malls across the country are creating an inviting holiday experience. Shoppers will enjoy the exciting promotions and festive events that keep our centers as their favored destination for shopping, dining and entertainment.”
While fantastic sales and significant seasonal discounts entice shoppers to visit malls during the holidays, it’s the festive holiday shopping experience that sets traditional shopping centers apart from their online competitors. From glistening lights, winter greenery, red bows and colorful swags, the look and feel of Christmas abounds. Plus, Arbor Place hosts several events throughout the season to spread holiday cheer and bring the holiday shopping experience to life. Help spread Christmas cheer by adopting an Angel from the Salvation Army Angel Tree. Also, stop by December 11-14 for our holiday music celebration and enjoy the sights and sounds of the season.
