Wakefield Mall

160 Tower Hill Road, Wakefield www.WakefieldMall.net Santa arrives by helicopter on November 29! Forget running around town to complete a shopping list. Instead, head to the Wakefield Mall, the only enclosed mall in South County. Home to such stores as Wakefield Books, FYE, Jennifer’s Chocolates and Wet Seal, the Wakefield Mall provides convenient, one stop shopping for everyone’s holiday needs. Finding time to run to a dozen separate stores is tough. Worse yet, it’s exhausting, and all that stress can suck the fun right out of the season. The holidays become about fitting a store into a schedule, rather than appreciating the opportunity to focus on finding a gift for someone special. At the Wakefield Mall, though, walkability is only second to quality of stores - a combination that feels like a breath of fresh air. But it gets better: the best part of the Wakefield Mall is their annual Santa arrival. On the day after Thanksgiving, November 29 at 11am, Santa arrives by helicopter probably because the reindeer are still training up for their big departure - and anyone can have a picture taken with him. Children go bananas while adults get into the festive spirit, making Santa’s arrival an unforgettable experience to kick off the season. Whether you’re looking for an outing with family or friends, or you’re in need of a wide range of quality stores to prepare for Christmas, the Wakefield Mall is South County’s premier shopping destination. Plus, they offer plenty of eating destinations for when all that shopping works up an appetite. So come on down! SO Rhode Island Gift Guide 2013
