“SANTA IS IN THE HOUSE” at Centre Court on the main level on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 11:30am to 2:00pm and again from 3:00pm to 6:30pm.  On Saturday and Sunday Santa will be here from 11:00am to 2:00pm and again from 3;00pm to 5:00pm. 

Did you know that we used over 4,000 lights to create the Christmas displays inside the mall and 1 very special light on the outside, on the roof at the east end of the skylight.  When you visit the mall lookup and see Rudolph looking back at you and keeping an eye on his buddy.

Did you know that Cornwall Square is partnering with several local charitable organizations to operate the Cornwall Square GIFT WRAP CENTRE located on the main level in the vacant store next to Maritime Travel and across from the TD ATM.  Look for the 10-foot-high Santa and our GIFT WRAP CENTRE sign in front of the store.   The Cornwall Square GIFT WRAP CENTRE will be open from 1:00pm to 6:30pm on November 24th & 25th, December 1st, 2nd and 8th.  From 1:00pm to 8:30pm on December 9th, 15th,16th, 19th, 20th, 21st,22nd, and 23rd.   From 11:00am to 4:30pm on November 26th & 27th, December 3rd & 4th, December 10th & 10th, December 17th & 18th and December 24th.   Cornwall Square is pleased to provide the charitable organizations involved an opportunity to use this seasonal service as a fundraising event.

Did you know that the Cornwall New Horizons Band will hold 2 concert performances here at Cornwall Square on the Upper Level in front of the Food Court on Saturday December 10th and Saturday December 17th from 11:45am to 12:45pm.  The 20-member band will regale mall customers and store staff with timeless yuletide music.  Did I ever mention the echo factor within the mall with the cathedral skylight?  Music is such an integral part of the Festive Season.

Did you know that customers are surprised to find Calendar Club and Hickory Farms joining forces under the same roofTheir combo store is causing some initial confusion for those who have for many years gravitated to the Hickory Farms kiosk location between Wireless Wave and Kool Kovers, but alas! The kiosk has morphed into a new display and business model inside the combined Calendar Club/Hickory Farms united store concept.  Both Hickory Farms and Calendar Club continue their tradition of offering their seasonal products in a different setting than previous years, but they are still here at Cornwall Square to serve you during this 2022 Festive Season.  Kim and her team are ready to look after you.

This Friday is BLACK FRIDAY, the “Day” where shoppers expect to get “GREAT DEALS” following the American Thanksgiving holiday.  Remember when you join the crowds to fight for that “special deal”: 1- the price of gas, 2- the U S $ conversion rate, 3- the cost and time to cross the border; all of these factors support the mantra I preach in the last paragraph of my weekly column.

Remember, shop indoors, shop The Square, and support your local merchants that make up Cornwall’s retail sector.
