It’s the holidays and Cresta Shopping Centre is excited to be a part of them. Until 24 December, the shopping centre will be transformed into a festive wonderland with something magical for everyone.
The newly-renovated Cresta Shopping Centre boasts fairylights, shiny baubles, and even a carriage and life-sized reindeer in the food and entertainment court – creating the most magical photo opportunity for the whole family!
Activities for the young and young-at-heart
Imagine more this festive season with over 260 stores, as well as additional activities created by Cresta for their shoppers. Bring your kids to the family zone in the banking court to enjoy festive craft activities, face painting, and the chance to tell Santa what they want for Christmas. They can also get their photo taken with Santa between 10am and 6pm.
For a decadent experience, pop into the #MakeMyMagnumSA Pleasure Bar in the food and entertainment court to indulge your tastebuds. Create your signature Magnum ice -cream, complete with delicious toppings – what a treat!
Giving back to the community
This time of year is all about generosity, so Cresta has made giving back easier for shoppers with their Charitable Festive Tree. In the Kindness Corner – outside FNB – is a giant tree bookshelf and reading corner that allows shoppers to donate new or pre-loved books. The books will be donated to a children’s home in the Cresta community.
Don’t have books to donate? Why not give a cash donation (cash or credit card) to go towards books instead. In the Kindness Corner, you’ll also be able to stop by for readings of children’s stories for a blissful break from shopping. Reading times are at 9am, 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm.
It’s in the details
The Cresta elves have thought of all the details this year to ensure that shoppers have a great experience. Friendly gift-wrappers will be at three gift-wrapping stations around the centre to turn your shopping into beautifully wrapped gifts for free. Performances by dazzling ballerinas and Nutcracker marching bands will be adding to the festive atmosphere as well.
Selfie spots around the centre allow you to capture your favourite festive moments and give shoppers the chance to win a R5 000 Cresta gift card by simply uploading their festive pictures onto Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #MerryCresta.
