‘Tis the season for shopping and Phoenix Premium Outlets in Chandler is going all out to welcome the holidays with an array of special events, new shops opening and the arrival of Santa.
Patriotic apparel brand Grunt Style had its grand opening at the outlets last week with another new retailer, Journeys, set to open this month. Journeys is a teen-oriented chain supplying casual, surf-and-skate-inspired clothes, shoes and accessories.
Special holiday event Story Time with Santa is coming up this Saturday, Dec.10 from noon to 3 p.m. Santa will be reading aloud at the Children’s Play Area and kids and adults can enjoy a complimentary hot cocoa station. Crafts and candy canes will be distributed.
No one can get shoppers in the spirit more than the man himself, Santa Claus, and the Smile with Santa event will be from noon to 3 p.m. this Sunday, Dec. 11. During this time, shoppers can visit the Tommy Hilfiger store for a special appearance by Santa, who will be greeting children and delivering special deals.
Visitors can also take advantage of photo stations fitted with fun holiday-themed Augmented Reality filters. Look for directive signs posted around the shopping center.
