Natick Mall pushes back closing time on weekends


Ever get the urge to shop late at night? No problem.

If your shopping impulse hits you earlier or later than the average person, Natick Mall's got a solution.

The mall is permanently extending its hours to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Also, it will open at 8 a.m. every Saturday.

The mall says its research shows 65 percent of costumers wanted extended hours.

"Consumers' shopping habits have changed," Stephanie Gambino, the mall's senior marketing manager, said in a statement. "We're confident the added convenience of an additional one to two hours on the weekend at opening/closing will make a difference with our shoppers."

Here are the new hours:
Friday: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Saturday: 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Monday to Thursday: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
