It’s Already Looking Like Christmas at the Mall of America
Sure, it might not even be Labor Day yet, but it's already beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Mall of America.
You read that correctly: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year is already happening at Minnesota's Mall of America in Bloomington. I know, I know, most stores are still getting ready for Halloween. And even though Christmas Day is still about 112 days away, you can get your Ho-Ho-Ho on right now if you head up Highway-52 and then take I-494 to the spot the old Metropolitan Stadium used to stand.
Now, the entire mall isn't decked out in its holiday finest... at least, not yet. But a new store at MOA is all about Christmas-- and, yes, it's already open. Callister's Christmas Store has been open for a little over a week now, according to a post on the MOA Facebook page. And Callister's Christmas is filled with EVERYTHING Christmas. It's jam-packed with everything you might need to celebrate the biggest holiday of the year.
And while they're new to the Land of 10,000 Lakes this year, Callisters Christmas has been selling Christmas tree ornaments and holiday decorations in the Milwaukee area for over 25 years. And they've been selling those same Christmas wares online on their website, as well.
Callister's Christmas has three locations for 2020. In addition to MOA, there are also stores at Fox River Mall in Appleton and the Mayfair Mall in Milwaukee. Both Wisconsin stores aren't open yet, though, and are set to open their doors in October.
