‘Midnight Madness’ on Black Friday
The all-night shopping tradition known as "Midnight Madness," in which Black Friday shopping starts the night of Thanksgiving at Wrentham Village Premium Outlets, was almost halted.
City officials considering revoking the mall's permission to open early due to a dispute over installing security cameras. Store representatives recently responded that they were working on the camera installations and “look forward” to “Midnight Madness.”
