Video posted on social media shows a group of customers being restrained by security guards as fisticuffs broke out late on Thanksgiving night at a mall in Hoover, Alabama.

According to Hoover Police, law enforcement was called to the Riverchase Galleria after a fight was reported at the Buckle store. When officers arrived, they found two juvenile ladies fighting, surrounded by a group of bystanders. 

The two ladies were separated by police, and treated by paramedics for minor injuries. 

Al.com reported that the fight was not due to sales, but due to a personal matter.  

The mall closed at 11:20 p.m. last night, but reopened at 6 a.m. Friday, according to Al.com.
