SouthPark Mall honors heroes with holiday program

Posted By on Thu, Nov 17, 2011 at 11:29 AM

Chronic shoppers, there's a cure on the way: It's shopping's most wonderful time of the year! SouthPark Mall has announced extended holiday hours, allowing both enthusiasts and procrastinators plenty of time to accomplish their holiday shopping.

Schedule:

Thanksgiving Day: Mall Closed

Friday, Nov. 25: 7 a.m.—10 p.m.

Saturday, Nov. 26: 8 a.m.—10 p.m.

Sunday, Nov. 27: 11 a.m.—7 p.m.

If you're feeling a little shallow about indulging in the shameless “buy, buy, buy” philosophy that seems to go hand-in-hand with holiday gift-giving, take comfort that SouthPark has not forgotten about the spirit of the season of giving. Along with other Simon Malls around the country, from Nov. 1-Dec. 31, SouthPark is partnering with the American Red Cross for their fifth annual Holiday Mail for Heroes program. HMH's goal is to distribute holiday cards to members of the military, veterans and their families.

Cards will be available at the mall's Simon Guest Services through Dec. 31, but on Black Friday, shoppers looking to share their sentiments with troops may write cards at both Simon Guest Services and the American Red Cross table in Circle Court.

Holiday Mail for Heroes hand-delivers the cards to military hospitals throughout the U.S. and also mails them overseas for delivery.
