Preparing for Black Friday 2013 shopping at Westminster Mall

I LOVE Black Friday shopping. Not because of the deals (though those are amazing), but because I get to finally experience the full holiday season when everyone is out shopping, Christmas music in the air and the kids and us have nothing but time to shop. It’s great.

We use to go around store-to-store shopping Black Friday deals, but three years ago we headed to Westminster Mall for our first “mall Black Friday” shopping experience. It was super convenient! Thanks to its wide array of stores, we were able to shop the Target deals, Best Buy, Game Stop, Old Navy, Victoria’s Secret, The Children’s Place and so many more! Years later, we keep coming back to this mall because they have two things that other malls may not have – valet parking AND a rejuvenation center.

Rejuvenation Station

The recently remodeled rejuvenation station is my favorite feature at Westminster Mall because it features soft seating, power outlets, wireless Internet access with dedicated routers, reading materials and catalogs. It’s located near Macy’s and Express on the lower level and open all year long. During Black Friday, bottled water and refreshments will be available at select times near Guest Services in Target Court on lower level as well.

Black Friday Exclusives

Westminster Mall will give the first 200 shoppers to stop by Guest Services will receive a free reusable shopping bag. In addition, Westminster Mall’s mall management “elves” will greet and reward shoppers who have been on their best behavior this year with surprise treats and goodies. Don’t worry if you can’t visit on Black Friday – this last exclusive will continue throughout the holiday season!

Westminster Mall will also be offering a couple of giftcard specials. Shoppers who purchase three giftcards from Simon Guest Services will receive free giftcard packaging, while customers who purchase $150 in select retailer giftcards from Guest Services will receive a free $15 Simon gift card.

Holiday Amenities

Keep coming back even after Black Friday and take advantage of the different holiday amenities offered to shoppers.
