Santa excites shoppers
HINKLER Central Shopping Centre has already seen a huge increase in Christmas shoppers, with five weeks still to go before the big day.
Centre manager Desley Cowley said the arrival of Santa on Saturday had excited both kids and adults.
“There has definitely been a pick-up in traffic through the centre,” she said.
“It will only get busier from now on.”
The centre will open on Boxing Day for the first time ever and Mrs Cowley expects to see plenty of shoppers.
