Unaccompanied minors are being banned from the Mall of America on Black Friday.

The Minnesota mega-mall doesn’t want anyone under the age of 16 alone in the mall on one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

In 2011, the mall saw a record 219,000 shoppers on Black Friday.

The mall’s parental escort policy is effective Nov. 22 and Nov. 23 and also the entire week between Christmas and New Year’s.

What do you think of the policy?
