Walden Galleria operating hours extended for final push of holiday shoppers
Buffalo, NY: Walden Galleria, the area’s largest shopping center, is extending their holiday hours in the weeks leading up to Christmas Day. Starting Monday, December 11th the super-regional mall will operate under their holiday hours: opening 9:00am-10:00pm. The week before Christmas, on December 19th, the mall will open at 8:00am and remain open until 11:00pm for shopping convenience. Walden Galleria will be open 8:00am-5:00pm Christmas Eve, December 24th, for last-minute shoppers. Walden Galleria will remain closed on Christmas Day, except for select restaurants, anchors, and Regal Cinemas.
“Over the holiday season, which really starts in the weeks leading up to Black Friday, we add approximately 55 additional hours from Black Friday through Christmas onto the schedule” says Marissa Romano, marketing director for Walden Galleria, “It’s a fun, bustling season, we just adjust hours to keep up with customer demand”.
The mall is also home to Macy’s, Lord & Taylor, and JCPenney anchor stores which operate on their own schedules, at times adding 70 hours or more to the schedule during the holiday season as shoppers rush to get their holiday gifts.
