As the holiday shopping season approaches, Saskatoon’s Midtown Plaza mall is expanding its operating hours.
Starting Monday, the mall will stay open another 90 minutes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays, closing at 7 p.m.
It will also stay open another hour on Sundays, closing at 6 p.m.
Mall spokesperson Sarah Geddes said expanded hours were something the retailers were pushing for.
“We’re actually having to turn people away at mall close which is never something a retailer wants to do,” she said. “It’s not a giant leap, but it certainly goes a long way to servicing the downtown workers who finish work at 5 p.m.”
Midtown will stay open until 9 p.m. Wednesday through Friday.
