Christmas in Nanaimo: Woodgrove gets festive

Woodgrove Centre is all about the sounds of the season over Christmas.

Woodgrove Centre is all about the sounds of the season over Christmas.

From a Singing Christmas Tree to musical performances by school groups, community choral groups, and a variety of other musical performers, Woodgrove adds a festive holiday atmosphere to the shopping experience.

And on a musical theme, charity gift wrapping supports the Nanaimo Child Development Centre’s Little Drummer Fund.

The mall is giving away giving one free, professional 5X7 photo (per sitting) with Santa Claus the entire time he’s here, as well as receipt collection draws for Woodgrove Centre gift cards equal to the amount a customer spends (up to $1,000 per entrant).

Children can deposit their letter to Santa in the special mailbox with all letters sent straight off to the North Pole.
