Santa is coming! Santa is coming!

ASHEBORO — It's the phrase children of all ages love to hear this time of year: Santa Claus is coming to town!

That's right – the Jolly Old Elf himself will be arriving at Randolph Mall this Saturday (Nov. 13) at 10 a.m. and will be available for visits and photographs with children through Christmas Eve. And because he is so magical, he'll also be appearing at Friendly Center and Oak Hollow Mall.

“Last year, Santa visited with over 12,000 kids between the three centers," said Tammy Hopkins, marketing specialist for the Carolina Region of CBL & Associates Properties Inc., owner of the three malls.  "We are glad that he is arriving to officially kick off the 2010 holiday season.”

Santa will be available to hear children's wishes at Center Court at Randolph Mall and Oak Hollow Mall from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from noon to 6 p.m. Sundays. At Friendly Center, Santa will be available in the Auditorium from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

But he's only available through 6 p.m. Christmas Eve when he will depart to begin his Christmas trek around the world.

Visiting Santa and delivering your wish list is free. Parents will have the option of buying a photo of their child with Santa. Prices vary for photo packages.

Also, shoppers can get a Season of Savings coupon book with over 80 coupons to Friendly Center, and over 30 coupons each for Oak Hollow and Randolph Mall.  “We recognize that shoppers are looking for value and savings,” Hopkins said.
