    Default Re: To and through

    AmE insists on 'through' for clarity when Saturday is included, where 'to' could include only Friday. BrE as I recall prefers to add the word 'inclusive' when Saturday is also meant.

    BrE accepts "to" as meaning including.

    Mall open Monday to Saturday, 9:00 till 21:00.
