In an effort to lure parents into their stores, the Cherry Hill mall has a special Santa experience for their kids.
“We have our Christmas Story Santa set, which is the only one in the country, and it is themed to the iconic movie,” said Lisa Wostromer with the Cherry Hill Mall.
Wostromer says the set has everything from little Ralphie and his Red Rider BB gun, to the bizarre leg lamp, both of which are featured in the movie.
She says this year’s Santa set up has helped bring people into the mall and put their stores in the black.
“It’s been really busy, she said. “So far it’s a really strong holiday season.”
The Santa and shopping combo seemed to be perfect for Miabella and her mother Marci.
“It was very very fun and you only get to do it once a year, so it’s very coolm,” Miabella said.
Marci added, “We love it, we love Christmas, we love the crowds, we love everything about it, we love the Santa experience.”
With an expected onslaught of last minute shoppers and kids wanting to see Santa, Wostromer says she expects the mall’s last few days before Christmas to be busy ones.
