As COVID-19 is still around and Christmas is just around the corner, people are starting to get into the holiday spirit which means Christmas is coming early.
With COVID-19 restrictions in place, retail outlets are preparing themselves for long line ups and angry customers.
Toys R Us is just one of the hundreds of stores that get busy during the holiday season. This year, different stores will be facing challenges with store hours and line ups, but they aren’t alone.
Mall Santas will be different, as the popular tradition and almost every kid’s dreams, will no longer be in place.
Waterloo Public Health says they will take extreme measures on how to safely approach a visit and photo with Santa this year. Different malls will plan out how they will go around it this year, either it’s no mall Santa or Santa will be in the background with a pixie glass in front.
