The holiday shopping season will begin one day early at Gurnee Mills Mall this year.

Instead of waiting for the day after Thanksgiving, the doors will open at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving. The mall will stay open all night and will close at 10 p.m. Friday.

Gurnee's mayor says people who go online for early shopping may come to the mall instead. She hopes that will increase sales tax revenue for the village.
