Malls track shoppers' cell phones on Black Friday - Nov. 22

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Attention holiday shoppers: your cell phone may be tracked this year. Starting on Black Friday and running through New Year's Day, two U.S. malls -- Promenade Temecula in southern California and Short Pump Town Center in Richmond, Va. -- will track guests' movements by monitoring the signals from their cell phones.

How long do most customers linger in Victoria's Secret? While U.S. malls have long tracked how crowds move throughout their stores, this is the first time they've used cell phones.
