Holiday Shopping Guide for Rochester Malls 2022

Shop Early!

November 1 – 23

We’re getting ready for the holiday season earlier than ever because we think everyone could use a little extra holiday cheer this year. Many of our retailers have begun offering ‘Pre-Black Friday Sales’ so we encourage people to come and shop early – early in the season, or earlier in the week, to help avoid crowds. This year mall stores will not have the option to open on Thanksgiving Day; Black Friday hours will be from 7am – 9pm, but don’t worry…most of our stores will have great deals all season long, not just for one day!

Black Friday Weekend! 

November 25 – 27

Find amazing deals, and keep your Holiday traditions alive, when you shop Black Friday Weekend at your Rochester Malls. The Mall at Greece Ridge is open Black Friday 7am – 9pm, Saturday 10am – 9pm, and Sunday 11am – 6pm.

Avoid Shipping Stress & Disappointment!

November 28 – December 24

Gift your holidays this year at your Rochester Malls – our stores are stocked and ready, so buy now and take it home today! Why pay for shipping, worry about deliveries coming when you’re not home, or gifts being stuck in the global shipping delays? We have fresh, exciting new stores ready for you to shop, try, buy, and take home today!

Santa Claus at The Mall at Greece Ridge

Visit Santa

November 26 – December 24

We are thrilled to have Santa at The Mall at Greece Ridge! Santa will be in Center Court November 26 – December 24. Santa will be at his chair Monday – Saturday: 11am – 7pm and Sunday: 11am – 6pm, please note that Santa will take a break every day at 2:30pm to feed the reindeer! On December 24, Santa will be at his chair 9am – 5pm and break 1pm – 1:45pm. We encourage children to write a letter ahead of time to put in Santa’s mailbox!

To help reduce crowds and wait times, and to make the experience as touchless as possible, VIP Recognition (the company that helps bring Santa to Eastview) is encouraging guests to make a reservation, and purchase their photo package, ahead of their visit; VIP staff will try to accommodate walk-up visits whenever possible.

As we have in years past, we will be offering additional opportunities to visit Santa. Santa Cares is a program for individuals who require additional assistance, extra time or who need a quieter, less stressful environment. Pet Night (is an opportunity for families to bring their furry, four-legged (or scaly, no-legged) family members to meet Santa.

BOPUS & Curbside Pick-Up

Enjoy new ways of shopping at The Mall at Greece Ridge – many of our retailers are making shopping even easier by offering curbside pick-up OR buy online pick-up in store… or both!

Important notes about curbside pick-up: when you complete your transaction please coordinate the pick-up location with the store, there are six different pick-up locations one outside each mall entrance, when you arrive at the mall, please contact the store directly and stay in your vehicle.
