Thanksgiving time is here and that means the craze of Black Friday is coming!

More and more people are shopping online these days, but there are still those who love the thrill of visiting their favorite retailers on Black Friday. USA Today reports that "the retailer association is expecting 115 million people to shop that day." This is good news considering the declining retail market and the fact that those shops rely heavily on foot traffic.

There are tons of stores and malls to choose from on Black Friday, but according to USA Today one shopping center stands out among the rest. They published an article recently titled 'The Best Retail Locations to Shop, State-By-State'. To compile this list, USA Today used data from 24/7 Wall Street showing "shopping malls, centers, and outlets per state primarily based on their gross leasable area."

For Iowa, the best Black Friday mall to shop at is Jordan Creek Town Center in West Des Moines! This Iowa mall has 162 shops to dive into including major stores such as Best Buy, and Coach. Not only are there plenty of stores to choose from, but there's some lovely scenery as well since the mall is in a "park-like" setting with a lakefront boardwalk. It may not be the place you want to be when it's cold out, but at least you can have something pretty to look at while you freeze.

For warmer options, there's also a 20-screen movie theater on site.
