West Edmonton Mall says it will not open stores at the mall until noon on Remembrance Day after all.
630 CHED News had earlier reported that the mall had planned for stores to open at 10 am, which would be different than other Edmonton malls, and different than what WEM has done in past years.
The mall said it received a lot of feedback on the change and wanted to apologize to anyone who felt they were not properly honouring Remembrance Day with the earlier opening.
That will give Jazmyn Krausert and others who work at the mall a chance to participate in the 10 AM Remembrance Day ceremony that will be held at the Ice Palace. “My great grandfather fought in the Second World War, and I am a Canadian history major in school. I want to be a teacher, I want to teach social studies.”
She said she is glad the mall responded to feedback from the community. (eb)
