McArthurGlen Vancouver Transforms into a Winter Wonderland
McArthurGlen Vancouver is bringing its elegant 45-foot Christmas tree back for their annual Sparkle Brighter holiday celebrations on November 24 th . Along with one of Lower Mainland’s biggest trees, the centre will be decked out in holiday decorations including giant Nutcrackers. The free and public event will encourage guests to embrace the holiday spirit with various family-friendly activities such as gingerbread decorating, ornament making, live carolling, and lighting of the Christmas tree with help from special guests from the North Pole.
To help shoppers get a head start on their holiday shopping, the centre will be offering a sneak peak of their door-crashing Black Friday sales a day.
Bringing even more excitement to the centre, new brands, UGG and Michael Kors will also be opening their doors for Black Friday, with Michael Kors offering 40 per cent off everything in store and an additional 10 per cent off for the first 250 shoppers Black Friday morning when the centre opens 2 hours early, at 8am.
