Pine Centre Mall Expecting Last Minute Xmas Rush

Saturday, December 24, 2016 @ 7:30 AM

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.”mall-1

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.”


Well so far this year I’ve seen 4 fights all between women one of the fights drew blood most of the others were shoving matches and lots of swear words.

This may be the most joyous time of the year but it also brings out the stupid in people and every year I see a couple of fights break out almost always between women rarely any between men

    Where the heck are you shopping? LOL.

      Third and George?

    2 fights Wally World 1 at the mall 1 at parkwood

    Every year I see on average 4-9 fights which most people can’t believe happen here but they do and they can be nasty Christmas brings out both the best and the worst in people and they almost always involve women it’s rare to see men fight over gifts but women it’s a different story

Amazon Prime is the best thing ever.

Definition of Generation-X

Generation X born after that of the Baby Boomers, (roughly from the early 1960’s to the mid 1970’s) often perceived to be disaffected and directionless.

So there you have it.

yes indeed. I am sure many merchants will be moving on to other projects to separate people from their money. I understand BOXING YEAR starts tomorrow. Bring cash or plastic.
