Everyone’s celebrating the holidays a little differently this year. In honor of that, Mall of America is reimagining the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, giving everyone the space and time for a safe and festive start while celebrating community, generosity and a holiday season like no other. Here’s a look at all the exciting experiences, offers and more throughout Mall of America’s 8 Days of Giving.
Like every holiday season, Mall of America will partner with several charities to share their mission and story. MOA will be hosting special offers at Community Commons, pop-up gift wrapping stations run by nonprofit partners and an art experience by Juxtaposition Arts as part of the fun.
This is a day to celebrate and give back to yourself — an opportunity to refresh before the reality of the holiday season hits. Special offers will include self-care retail, attraction and dining experiences, personal shopping and private shopping appointments, and free valet service (limited availability) as part of the day.
Whether used on this day or simply purchased, special offers will include friend-care retail offerings like massages and spa times as well as gift cards to fine dining experiences and unique attractions — to be enjoyed together when the time is right.
Five years ago, Mall of America took a stand and closed on Thanksgiving Day. It was a way to give back to the more than 10,000 people who work in the building. We are proud to continue this tradition. Our giving thanks wish is that everyone uses this day to celebrate with friends and family — whether in person or over a Zoom call.
Although we won’t be hosting our traditional scratch-off giveaway and we won’t encourage lines outside our doors, the tradition of special offers and perfect gift finds can be found throughout this entire day. Our doors will open at 8 a.m. and stay open until 10 p.m. so guests can visit when it is convenient for them.
Among our more than 500 shops and boutiques, Mall of America is home to more than 175 small businesses. Special promotions supporting the small, often locally owned and operated stores, restaurants and attractions will be highlighted this day. Think local. Give local. Support local.
There is fun for the entire family, and this day will offer unique one-day specials. Attractions such as Nickelodeon Universe, Crayola, Sea Life Aquarium, Moose Mountain and Rock of Ages mini golf, and XD Ride will offer gift certificates that will be the perfect stocking stuffers. You can also book a behind-the-scenes Mall of America tour and enter for a chance to win great prizes.
This day is all about shopping digitally, using delivery, curbside pickup and livestream shopping. Many MOA shops offer free, convenient curbside delivery. Throughout the day for 24 amazing hours, Mall of America will feature a wide variety of shops and items that can be purchased during our livestream shopping extravaganza.
