Pity the Great Mall employee who overindulges on Turkey Day. The outlet mall will open its doors for business at 10pm that evening and will stay open for the next 24 hours straight. Is shopping Last Call by Neiman Marcus, Coach Factory Store, Forever 21, Abercrombie & Fitch Outlet, Banana Republic Factory Store, BCBG MAXAZRIA, Hollister Outlet, G by GUESS and Nike Factory Store at doubly-discounted prices worth heading to Milpitas in the middle of the night? You be the judge! During more sane hours, Sam and Lissa of 94.5 KBAY will broadcast live from 1 to 5 p.m. on Friday, and they'll be doling out freebie holiday CD to the first 1,000 shoppers who visit their booth. Carolers in Victorian garb will also stroll through the mall serenading folks. It's a bit much to process, but die-hard shoppers will certainly embrace the madness.
