“Convenience is key to successful holiday shopping whether you start early or late in the season. Research shows that 84% of shoppers agree that malls provide a convenient option to get a lot of shopping done in one trip*,” said Heather Lloyd, director of marketing and business development at Woodfield Mall. “We are offering extra holiday hours to meet our customers’ needs – from the person looking for the latest fashion and styles of the season to the family hunting for great deals, or for the last-minute shopper in search of the perfect gift,” added Gayle Gleespen, director of marketing and business development at Orland Square Mall.
Shopper appreciation programs will take place throughout the holiday season. Shoppers can sign-up for the Simon Rewards program to accumulate points as they shop to earn exclusive rewards and benefits or use their points toward chances to win prizes. Simon Rewards members can access the program using the free Simon Rewards app (available on the Apple App Store or Android Play), online at www.simonrewards.com or at the Simon Rewards kiosks located throughout each center.
Woodfield Mall will also be offering shoppers complimentary coat and package check at Simon Guest Services, as well as the opportunity to give back through a Toys for Tots toy drive with the Boy Scouts of America Discovery Outpost now through December 10, and more.
