The 2020 holiday season is already shaping up to be a year like no other, which is why the Galleria at Crystal Run 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. Karla Leon, marketing director for the Galleria, said many of the Galleria at Crystal Run’s tenants are following the trend.
“The spreading-out of sales and deep discounts throughout the entire holiday season should help minimize lines and crowds,” said Leon. “The deals to be had will be bigger than ever and available earlier than ever.”
In addition, Leon said that for the first time, the Galleria will join fellow industry leaders by closing on Thanksgiving Day to enable tenants and staff to spend time with family.
The Galleria has taken 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 Orange 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.
