The Mall at Robinson kicked off the holiday shopping season with a week of events, beginning with a day of entertainment, food, and festivities at the Holiday Mingle & Jingle. A $10 ticket gave shoppers access to exclusive offers, including a $25 gift card for any $200 purchase in the mall! Young shoppers entered Candy Cane Lane at the food court, where they made crafts; wrote letters to Santa; and shared a plate of cookies and milk with Jolly ‘Ol Elf. Guests enjoyed a meet and greet with Spencer Boldman from Disney’s “Lab Rats” and Elsa and Anna from Disney’s “Frozen;” and enjoyed musical performances from The Brighton Boys and local artist Maya Jones. Shoppers enjoyed exclusive discounts that lasted all week long, leading up to Black Friday. “We had seen from previous years that shoppers wanted more options,” says The Mall at Robinson Marketing Director Shema Krinsky. “This year, we put together a full week so shoppers could choose when they wanted to shop and still get impressive discounts, exclusive rewards, and a great experience.” The thousands raised benefited the Young Women’s Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation. All the more reason to shop!
