The 2021 holiday season is already shaping up to be a year like no other, which is why Champlain Centre is announcing special hours and initiatives to make this holiday season safe, magical and memorable for everyone.
Simply put — don’t wait to shop! And do your holiday shopping in person to guarantee you’ll find something for everyone on your list in time for the holiday season. Retail experts cite significant expected issues with online shopping this year, including an unprecedented shipping backlog and unavailability of online product, encouraging consumers to start their holiday shopping earlier in the season and in person to guarantee a successful holiday shopping outcome. Champlain Centre’s Marketing Director, Emily Moosmann, said many of Champlain Centre tenants are following the trend.
“November is the new December,” said Moosmann. “Given the expected challenges with online shopping this year, we cannot stress enough how important it is for holiday shoppers to begin their shopping earlier than ever and in person. Our tenants are stepping up with stocked shelves, additional seasonal employees and earlier deals and discounts to help ensure our shoppers have a successful holiday shopping season.”
In addition, Moosmann announced that for the second year in a row, Champlain Centre will join fellow industry leaders by closing on Thanksgiving Day. Click here for a complete listing of Champlain Centre’s holiday hours.
“If the challenges of the pandemic have taught us anything, it is the value of time with family. It is our hope that our guests, tenants and on-site staff will be able to spend additional time with their loved ones and re-charge during the most active shopping season of the year.”
Santa is also coming to town this holiday season with a scheduled return to Champlain Centre December 2nd along with new safety protocols. Additional details will be shared in the upcoming weeks.
