Be Happy. Be Healthy. Flatiron Crossing Mall Has You Covered
Get Your Holiday Shopping Done
I will be honest, for the most part a lot of my holiday shopping has been done online. 2020 has created a lot of reasons to use the online services but as December ticks away, I felt like I was missing something. The MALL!! Hey, I spent my teenage years walking the mall and I have to say, I have missed the mall atmosphere…especially as the holidays started sneaking up on me.
One of my favorite malls is Flatiron Crossing in Broomfield Colorado. If you are in the North Denver area you are probably pretty familiar with this mall. When I stated going through my holiday shopping list I found myself noticing that I was missing a few key items that I didn’t want to buy online OR felt like I missed the shipping deadline to complete my list!
Flatiron Crossing Mall – Health & Wellness Precautions
Now, I know we are all concerned about our health and wellness during this unprecedented time but from the moment you enter the mall you can see that the management has taken your health and wellness very seriously. The health and wellness messaging is front and center throughout the holiday season, all to reassure shoppers that the mall is exceeding the CDC guidelines.
Some highlights to consider:
- COVID Protocols – masks, social distancing, filtered air and sanitizing stations.
- Contactless Santa visits and photos – appointments encouraged!
- Curbside pickup and dining takeout options.
- Shopping Options: buy online and pickup in store or shop by appointment!
- Extended holiday hours.
As I was doing my shopping I was so happy with how everyone (staff and visitors) were handling these precautions. Oh and another thing to consider…the hustle and bustle of crowds…NOT THIS YEAR! Look, I love shopping but hated being shoulder to shoulder with people and with these extended hours and multiple ways to do your holiday shopping at Flatiron Crossing Mall, the crowds are not so overwhelming.
My Shopping Experience
Even with the updated precautions, the mall felt so welcoming and festive for the holiday season. Just what I was craving! Are you ready to hear all about my fun afternoon at the mall? Guys…my shopping is DONE! YAY!! For the most part, I was shopping for Santa gifts and stocking stuffers. Stocking stuffers are my favorite part of holiday shopping which is why I love to go in-store for those items.
Every year I make sure the kids get new wall calendars, fun trinkets and games and of course candy! If you followed along in my Instagram stories you saw that I made a lot of stops but all of them were successful. Got the yummy candy – in a super COVID friendly manner. Filled my stocking with goodies from Sephora – its the most wonderful time of the year!! Made sure to get our personalized tree ornament for the year and found some great items for those hard to buy for family members at Forever 21. Successful shopping trip!
It is important to remember that while you are shopping, you might need to wait in line to be called into the store as they are running at a lower capacity in each individual store front. But like I said before, I found this super encouraging and helpful as it is clear that Flatiron Crossing Mall wants their visitors and staff to know their health and wellness is their priority!
Santa Is Still Coming To Town
You may have seen our tradition continue at the Flatiron Crossing Mall Santa on my Instagram page last week. There are certain holiday traditions that must go on…even in 2020! Visiting Flatiron Crossing Mall for Santa pictures is something that I have done with the kids for the past 10 years and it doesn’t seem like Christmas without doing this special visit!
Thankfully…SANTA IS STILL COMING TO TOWN!!! I simply made our appointment online and we headed to the mall with our holiday gear (masks included). The mall was so festive and brought us right into the holiday spirit. Our Santa experience was perfect…just what we needed to make sure our holiday season starts on the right foot! I was so impressed with how clean the Santa area was kept but also how amazing Santa was with the kids. Masked up he still engaged with them and made sure their wishes were heard.
Santa will be at Flatiron Crossing Mall until December 24th so make your online appointment today!! Click here to make your appointment.
