Barrington’s Ice House Mall is hosting a very special visitor this week. Elmo is dropping by The Learning Experess Toy Store on Thursday AND on Saturday!
Elmo is in town to help The Ice House Mall kick off the holiday shopping season. The Ice House shops will be offering special holiday discounts during their “Sneak Peak Holiday Sale” from this Thursday (November 11th) through Sunday (November 14th). You’ll find Elmo hanging around the Ice House’s children’s shops, like Learning Express Toys, Tommy & Terri, Young Tootsies and Kidz Parties Plus More on Thursday, from 4-6PM and on Saturday from 11AM until 1PM.
I did ask Elmo what he’s most thankful for this year and about his favorite Thanksgiving tradition. He giggled, and here’s what he had to say: “Elmo is thankful that kids are still kids, that Elmo can delight them and that kids come out to see Elmo…On Thanksgiving Day, Elmo likes to be at home and eat at his own table with no phone calls, no interviews, no malls, no visits, just Thanksgiving at home with his family.” Thanks, Elmo! Please save some hugs for us. My daughter Grace and I will drop by to see you sometime this week.
