Disney Store Black Friday Deals and Rumors

With one of the nations biggest shopping days right around the corner, The Disney Store has been erroneously included in a rumor that is circulating the internet about stores that are closing locations. The Disney Blog has not been one of those sites. You may have seen the email which warns consumers not to buy gift cards this holiday season. Just to be clear the Disney Store is NOT closing 98 stores and gift cards will still be honored.

“As you may know, Disney Store closed 88 locations earlier this year to adjust our overall store portfolio,” said Jim Fielding, president, Disney Stores Worldwide. “This occurred during the transition from being a licensed business separate from The Walt Disney Company to becoming part of the Disney family once again. Disney Store has no current plan or announcement to close 98 Stores. This is inaccurate information that has been circulated via the Internet.”

Disney Store currently has locations in more than 220 malls across America. Like many other stores, they are gearing up for the day after Thanksgiving and stocking the shelves with toys and items for Disney fans across the nation. More than 100 locations are opening at midnight this year. To find out if a store near you is opening at midnight, please go to www.disneystore.com and click on the store locator or call 800-757-5933.
