New Jersey Mall No Longer Charges for Visit With Santa [POLL]
A New Jersey mall feels the Christmas spirit and has a change of heart. Earlier, it was reported that a local mall would be charging parents if they wanted their child to meet Santa. Apparently this isn't the case any longer.
Updated as of 11/16/2015 at 4:50pm - According to NBC Philadelphia, The Cherry Hill Mall will no longer be charging Santa's visitors.
Here is what was previously report:
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, The Cherry Hill Mall now has a Santa package which costs between $35 to $50. Parents must pay at least a $35 entrance fee before they even let their children sit on Santa's lap.
Unsurprisingly, parents were surprised and angered at the mall's decision to make people pay up just to meet the 'Big Guy'.
Santa Claus is coming town, but not for those who can't afford the $35 Santa fee.
It's not all bad news though, the mall is offering two days were the kids can have snack with Santa for free on November 29th and December 5th. Also, available is December 6th for children with special needs.
So what do you think? Should you pay at least $35 to have your kids visit Santa Claus this Christmas?
