New year, new hobby!

We’ve all made a resolution or three in the past that turned out... or rather didn’t turn out at all.  Not this year! Instead of making an impossible to-do list for 2020, why not do something a little different, learn something new, and have a little me time in the process?  Having a hobby not only gives us something to do during our leisure time, it’s also a fantastic way to learn a new skill and meet people with similar interests to our own. Hobbies are also a great way to relieve stress by providing a creative outlet that’s otherwise…

Black Friday

Mall of the North had a very successful Black Friday.  Many stores opted to start their Black Friday specials earlier and extend some specials for the entire weekend this year which meant less of a rush on Black Friday itself. While our footcount for Friday is a little lower in comparison to 2018, the overall numbers for the 2019 Black Friday weekend are up, along with an increase in the number of shoppers for the entire month of November. In addition, turnover income for Mall of the North tenants also increased from last year.  We are also happy to report…
