(Westshore Town Centre)

If you’re missing your traditional visit with Santa this year, not to fret!

Westshore Town Centre wants to bring the visit to you and your family – virtually.

They’re offering the exclusive chance to enjoy a free one-on-one virtual visit via Zoom from the comfort of your own home with the man of the season – Santa Claus!

The five-minute sessions using Zoom are being offered at no cost now through to December 24th, but they’re going fast!

“Christmas is not cancelled,” says Kelly McClure, Marketing Manager at Westshore Town Centre.

“The safety of our shoppers retailers, and Santa Claus himself, is our top priority, and we’re excited to bring holiday joy to the community once again, just in a different way. We love that by offering one-on-one video calls, kids will be able to spend quality face-time with the big guy in red, creating a very special memory.”

      Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays or Saturdays
    • Visit with Santa Fred on
      Tuesdays, Thursdays or Fridays
  • Your personal Zoom reservation link will be emailed to you with your appointment confirmation – be sure to check your Spam or Junk folders as e-mails may end up there!
  • While no sign-up is required for Zoom, if you are using a mobile device for your virtual visit, you will need to download the Zoom app to access your call with Santa
  • If you do not receive your confirmation e-mail after 24 hours, please e-mail  kelly.mcclure@quadreal.com with your name, your child(s) name, phone number, and date and time of selected reservation.
  • Bookings start and end on time.  If you are unable to make it to your reservation, kindly book a new one as Westshore Town Centre is unable to make changes.
  • Visits with Santa will be approximately 5 minutes long.
  • Please be sure to have your Zoom reservation setup and ready to go as soon as your time slot hits so that Santa can meet all the wonderful families right on time!
