Thank you to The Mall at Partridge Creek sending us on a back to school shopping spree & giving us a gift card for food & one to giveaway as well. The honest opinions are our own.
It’s that time of year – back to school shopping season! Around the country kids all over have already started school but here in Michigan, we don’t start until after Labor Day. It’s glorious! We get to fully enjoy summer and are thankful for every bright, beautiful, sunny day we have left.
Even so we do have to do some back to school shopping. Kora & Logan just keep growing! That’s why I was excited recently to get the chance to go on a shopping spree with the kids at The Mall at Partridge Creek!
We also learned a lot about the shopping center.
Did you know that The Mall at Partridge Creek is dog friendly? Being an outdoor mall, you would think so, but they take it a step further. Many stores put out bowls of water for pups and if you see this friendly dog sticker on the window, dogs are actually allowed in the store!
There are even a number of cute statues around the mall.
And they offer dog comfort stations, where you can get doggie bags etc.
We also learned that The Mall at Partridge Creek just started the Oh, So Simple Rewards program and it sounds fantastic! The tagline is, “The easy way to make shopping pay.” When you sign up for the program you’ll start earning cash back on your purchases, receive special program offers, and more. You can even earn $10 when you spend $250!
To join simply visit the Simple Reward website and create an account. You can then connect a credit or debit card to the rewards account and start enjoying the benefits right away. Once you’ve scored a reward, that money is automatically credited back to your registered card statement right after your next purchase anywhere at The Mall at Partridge Creek.
You can also visit the customer service area at the mall to sign up while you are there.
We spent the morning and afternoon shopping for back to school clothes and visited a number of retailers:
- Gap Kids
- Janie & Jack
- LL Bean
- ..and more
The kids did great and found a number of things for school.
Kora also runs a bit cold in the fall and winter so we were excited to find a great price on this adorable Columbia jacket. Even though it’s 80 degrees right now, she keeps saying she can’t believe how cozy and fuzzy it its.
While there, I was interested to learn that the LL Bean store had just opened up and in fact for opening day, they had people start lining up at the door at 5:30 in the morning! Did you know it’s the only LL Bean store in Michigan?
We were also excited to see the Henry Ford Macomb Hospitals Children’s Play Park for little kids. It was newly redesigned with a fruits and vegetable theme and is very cute! The material that the climbing pieces are made out of is not slippery so kids won’t fall, and it doesn’t get hot. Brilliant!
I was also impressed to learn about the First State Bank Summer Sounds Concert Series they offer. It’s live entertainment every Thursday – Monday with a wide variety of performers each evening. It’s free and a wonderful way to spend a summer evening.
There are also many exciting things coming to The Mall at Partridge Creek including the addition of Cabin at the Creek. It will be a park-style, multi-purpose cabin that will be the setting for photos with Santa as well as other holiday themed activities including Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween , and more.
The MJR Digital Cinema 14 at the mall is remodeling as well to add VIP electric recliners with reserved seating and an updated concessions stand, and more.
And on August 27th, the mall is having a Back To School Kick-Off Event from 12 pm – 2 pm. There will be live dance performances, a fashion show presented by Carson’s, prizes, and more. It looks like lots of fun and a great way to start the school year!
We had a fantastic time back to school shopping at The Mall at Partridge Creek and are looking forward to going back often. Their holiday displays sound amazing and with the 30-foot fireplace in Center Court, free wifi, a TV court, and so many shops and restaurants, there is truly something for everyone!
That’s why I’m excited to offer the giveaway below.
