This holiday season, Arpico Supercentres have gone all out to bring the Christmas spirit to shoppers of all ages with a splendid atmosphere and a host of activities. 

Decorated with décor, lighting and with seasonal goodies, kids in particular enjoyed  their stay at the Santa’s House, taking photos with Santa and family, playing games, posting Christmas wishes while the not so young had fun and excitement with carols at the Christmas Caravan, cookery demonstrations on Christmas dishes, and seasonal music to name a few. A giant 35 foot Christmas tree was lit up welcoming shoppers to the Hyde Park Corner (HPC) Christmas zone, as part of 12 days of Christmas to bring fun and excitement to all shoppers.
