Walden Galleria Announces 2020 Holiday Hours
— Walden Galleria shares holiday hours, welcomes new shopping trends & supports the gift of family time —
Buffalo, NY: The 2020 holiday season is already shaping up to be a year like no other, which is why Walden Galleria is announcing new hours and initiatives to make this holiday season safe, magical and memorable for everyone. Earlier this year, retail marketing experts accurately predicted that retailers would encourage consumers to start their holiday shopping earlier by extending exclusive deals throughout the season in lieu of the traditional high-trafficked Thanksgiving/Black Friday kickoff. Walden Galleria’s Marketing Director, Alex Corbelli, said many Walden Galleria tenants are following the trend.
“We’re seeing early Black Friday deals and shoppers are being encouraged by many of our tenants to break up the traditional, one-day-only rush,” said Corbelli. “The spreading-out of sales and deep discounts throughout the entire holiday season should help minimize lines and crowds. Sales available at several retailers will be larger and available earlier than normal.”
In addition, Walden Galleria will join fellow industry leaders by closing on Thanksgiving Day. The shopping center will reopen at 7:00 a.m. on Black Friday, November 27th. Click here for a complete list of Walden Galleria’s holiday hours.
“If the challenges of the pandemic have taught us anything, it is the value of time with family. It’s 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.”
Walden Galleria has been a leader in taking concrete steps to ensure the safety of guests and employees by following guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), New York State and Erie County. Masks and social distancing will continue to be required to enter the property and guests are encouraged to follow the center’s Healthy Shopper Guidelines.
Santa Claus is also coming to town this holiday season with a scheduled return to Walden Galleria in late November along with new safety protocols. Additional details will be shared in the upcoming weeks.
