If you shop in Orange County, chances are that you hit up one or two Simon Malls throughout your shopping excursions. Maybe you’re a Westminster Mall shopper (like me) or perhaps you venture down south to The Shops at Mission Viejo. Whether you shop at either of these two, or at the Brea Mall or Laguna Hills Mall, now you have an even bigger incentive to shop at Simon Malls – introducing the “Surprise and Delight” series (continuing until Christmas eve). Here are a few highlights of this fun (no work needed) series:
Surprise gifting to holiday shoppers
Mall management staff on the premises, eager to introduce themselves and thank shoppers for visiting the mall – they may even give a holiday treat without warning. These gifts will vary by mall, but holiday revelers could find themselves with a voucher for free coffee, a coupon for a free appetizer at a mall restaurant, or some candy to satisfy that sweet tooth!
Help carrying packages to their vehicles (excluding Laguna Hills Mall)
Shoppers needing help carrying packages to their vehicles will find assistance readily available at busy mall entrances. Easily-identifiable security personnel will be happy to ‘lighten the load’. This service is available every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday throughout the holiday season and on Christmas Eve.
Available staff for finding the right shops (excluding Laguna Hills Mall)
Friendly mall staff will be stationed near mall directories during holiday weekends and on Christmas Eve ready to give directions, answer questions, and distribute the popular ‘Retailer Showcase’ with the mall’s best holiday offers and deals. These holiday greeters will be available every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday throughout the holiday season and on Christmas Eve.
Shoppers will also want to grab a schedule of the many entertainment offerings on mall during the holiday season. From school choirs singing holiday favorites to dance troupes to local musicians and theater groups, the mall, as it has been for generations, is the perfect place to catch the holiday spirit.
Local charity fundraisers
Local charity outreach is always a major part of the Simon holiday story and that is no exception this year as local charities will be on mall during the season fundraising for their efforts.
These popular lounges serve as a resting place for shoppers looking to regain their second wind! Shoppers can enjoy a comfortable seat, scan the Retailer Showcase or the local paper, and have a beverage. If you’re shopping at the Westminster Mall – you can find the Rejuvenation Station by the escalators on the first floor (not by the Target).
Free Valet for shoppers spending over $500 (excluding Laguna Hills Mall and Brea Mall)
One day of free valet parking during the holiday season for patrons who spend $500 in any one day and show their receipts at Guest Services.
