In Lynnwood, shopping can still be among the highlights of this holiday season, rather than a cause for worry. In fact, in this most unusual year this charming town just 16 miles north of Seattle may just be the ideal place to cross everyone you love off your list – safely.
What’s to love about shopping this season in Lynnwood? Well, with shopping experiences that range from the eclectic to the traditional, a town-wide devotion to keeping everyone safe, and with Santa very much still coming to town, just about everything.
The hub of Lynnwood’s shopping scene, the Alderwood Mall is a place to find everything on your list, all while keeping shoppers safe with strict adherence to the latest health and safety guidelines. With nearly 200 shops, department and electronic stores, specialty boutiques, and more, Alderwood Mall is the largest indoor/outdoor shopping center in the region.
We all want to celebrate our time-honored holiday traditions, and no holiday season is complete without a visit from Santa. This year, Santa will be making socially distant visits with the kids in addition to offering a virtual experience. And with the AMC Loews Cineplex open at 40% capacity, the family can still share in a holiday film.
Use our handy shopping tool to make the most of your day of shopping. And Alderwood Mall has devised additional plans to limit lines and avoid crowds, keeping everyone safe and healthy this holiday season.
