There are some exciting things happening at The Shops at Mission Viejo, Brea Mall, Laguna Hills Mall and the Westminster Mall. The malls are hosting different "Surprise & Delight" events to help make holiday shopping exciting. Events will include special relaxation lounges, help with packages, special gift wrapping and more.
Shoppers at the four different malls will enjoy the below 'Surprise & Delights':
- Surprise gifting to holiday shoppers
- Mall management staff on the premises, eager to introduce themselves and thank shoppers for visiting the mall - they may even give a holiday treat without warning. These gifts will vary by mall, but holiday revelers could find themselves with a voucher for free coffee, a coupon for a free appetizer at a mall restaurant, or some candy to satisfy that sweet tooth!
- Help carrying packages to their vehicles (excluding Laguna Hills Mall)
- Shoppers needing help carrying packages to their vehicles will find assistance readily available at busy mall entrances. Easily-identifiable security personnel will be happy to ‘lighten the load’. This service is available every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday throughout the holiday season and on Christmas Eve.
- Available staff for finding the right shops (excluding Laguna Hills Mall)
- Friendly mall staff will be stationed near mall directories during holiday weekends and on Christmas Eve ready to give directions, answer questions, and distribute the popular ‘Retailer Showcase’ with the mall’s best holiday offers and deals. These holiday greeters will be available every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday throughout the holiday season and on Christmas Eve.
- Holiday Entertainment
- Shoppers will also want to grab a schedule of the many entertainment offerings on mall during the holiday season. From school choirs singing holiday favorites to dance troupes to local musicians and theater groups, the mall, as it has been for generations, is the perfect place to catch the holiday spirit.
- Local charity fundraisers
- Local charity outreach is always a major part of the Simon holiday story and that is no exception this year as local charities will be on mall during the season fundraising for their efforts.
- ‘Rejuvenation Stations’
- Returning to Simon malls this year, these popular lounges serve as a resting place for shoppers looking to regain their second wind! Shoppers can enjoy a comfortable seat, scan the Retailer Showcase or the local paper, and have a beverage.
- Free Valet for shoppers spending over $500 (excluding Laguna Hills Mall and Brea Mall)
- Patrons who spend $500 in any one day and show their receipts at Guest Services, will be entitled to one day of free valet parking during the holiday season
