I have just returned from the Mall on a Friday night-during Holiday Shopping Season, and yes it is busy. The mall is crowded with Holiday Shoppers, Teenagers, Strollers and Parents trying to fulfill Christmas Lists. In this busy mall you will find several Clerks safely enclosed by the Mall's information Desk. I really could not tell you what services are provided by the information desk. Perhaps you can buy a Mall wide gift card, ask directions to a store, report your missing glove...
I make it a point to go to the info counter and take a look at the store coupons offered in a display stand. I stop here first before going to any store to see what coupons are up for grabs. Tonight I snatched a Macy's Family and Friends booklet 25% off regular, sale, and clearance items December 1 through December 6, 2010. There are two coupons in this booklet that are the size of a credit/gift card easily stuck in your wallet instead of fishing out of your purse. One to keep and one to share if you choose. Sephora had a gift brochure, but not a coupon. I am told if you sign up for their beauty insider program you will receive a gift on your Birthday, earn points when you shop to get free products, and coupons emailed to you.
We made a visit to Urban Outfitters where I found a 10% off coupon to use on line now through December 23, 2010. I was going to buy something there, but took the coupon home to get the discount online. I just hope they offer free shipping!!! The reverse side of this coupon has peel and stick gift tags- I love free stuff. Look by the registers for piles of these coupons, even if you don't think you will use the coupon, get the free gift tags. ( It is a red side coupon, silver and white snowflake gift tags)
