Hey, sleepyhead! On December 1, Santa’s inviting everyone to “PJ Saturday” at Stonebriar Centre’s New North Pole. Santa knows it’s hard to get up and going, so he wants everyone wearing their holiday pj's to come and visit any time from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
“Children look precious in their holiday pajamas, and what could be a cuter picture than little ones in their pjs sitting on Santa’s lap? It could be the cutest holiday memory ever,” said Stacy Schuch, marketing manager for Stonebriar Centre. “Plus, the kids will think it’s fun to come to Stonebriar Centre in their pajamas.”
A special “PJ Saturday” surprise: On Saturday, December 1, Hanna Andersson, the Swedish retailer known for its adorable holiday collections for not only boys and girls, but also mom's and dad's, will give away a pair of boys’ pajamas and a pair of girls’ pajamas from their holiday collection. Visitors to Santa can register to win the pajamas from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the New North Pole on the lower level of the shopping center near Dillard’s and Sears. The drawing will be held at 12:15 p.m. at Hanna Andersson (located on the upper level near The Limited). The winners will be drawn at random and must be present to win.
