I'm a little late getting to these, but the mall has a few new shops. (Not counting H&M, whose grand opening is Nov. 21.) Also, Santa arrives at the mall this Saturday at 10 a.m. with Mrs. Claus at his side.
- Oakley opened in mid-October and is the first Oakley store in Idaho. It's on the upper level across from Starbucks.
- Candy Moon is a retro candy shop on a cart outside of the Apple store. They're selling candy cigarettes, novelty lip gloss, U-NO bars and other treats.
- Hickory Farms, one of the mall's holiday staples, is now located on the upper level near Kohl's. They're selling meats, summer sausage, cheese, crackers, mints and gift sets.
The mall is hosting a series of kids' activities and events with Santa and Mrs. Claus, and holiday events for grown-ups. Check www.boisetownesquare.com for details.
