Keep Your Children Safe While Shopping

With 160,000 shoppers this Thanksgiving weekend alone and 1.5 million expected through the holidays, you're urged to keep a close eye on your children.

South Plains Mall Marketing Manger Beth Bridges says, "It's easy to get separated in large crowds. Know where your children are. Have a plan in place if you get separated like meet at the Santa or go to a store."

Bridges suggests the following to keep your children safe:

  • Keep your children close at all times. You can rent a stroller from guest services at the mall if you need one.
  • Teach your children to stay inside a store if they get lost.
  • Tell them to never go outside.
  • Teach kids to look for a security guard if they get lost. The mall has hired extra security for the holidays.
  • Finally, make time for breaks so your children won't grow restless and run off.

Safari Play Area is open year round at the mall, but don't leave the kids unattended.
