Christmas tree looking a little sparse? The Alexandria Commons Shopping Center at 3233 Duke Street is hosting a pop-up on Saturday (Dec. 19) that will include a free ornament decorating kit.
“Celebrate the holidays by decorating your own holiday ornament!” the center said on its Facebook page.
The pop-up is scheduled to run from noon to 2 p.m.
“Your kit will include all supplies needed to decorate your ornament, fun holiday giveaways and a few surprises from Alexandria Commons Shopping Center merchants,” the shopping center said. “Once your ornament is complete share with your family and friends via Facebook to be entered into our contest to win a $50 gift card to an Alexandria Commons Shopping Center merchant of your choice.”
There will be 300 kits available given away one per person on a first come, first serve basis. The center noted on the event page that social distancing and COVID-19 restrictions will be enforced.
