Pine Centre Mall Expecting Last Minute Xmas Rush
Prince George, B.C. – Still checking that list and checking it twice?
If yes, you’re still in luck as Pine Centre Mall is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. today.
“We’re expecting a very busy day at the mall because it falls on a Saturday this year,” says marketing director Braydon Ouellet. “Many people will have the day off and have the day to complete their last-minute Christmas shopping.”
Even though Christmas Eve has fallen on a weekend this year, he says they’re usually busy this day regardless.
“Christmas Eve is typically an extremely busy time at the mall as many people finish up their gift shopping or getting that last stocking stuffer. The great thing about Pine Centre Mall is the wide range of store options so you will be able to find what you’re looking for, no matter who you’re shopping for.”
Ouellet adds the prototypical Christmas Eve shoppers are Generation X males but says it will likely look different this year because it falls on a Saturday.
“This year we expect many families to be here during the day finishing up their shopping as well.”
And if you’re not into wrapping presents they’ve got you covered there too.
“You can get your gifts wrapped for you while you finish your shopping. The SPCA is wrapping gifts outside of the Sears indoor entrance with all proceeds going to support them.”
