Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall Hosts Back-to-School Celebrations
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (August 4, 2017) – Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall wants teachers, parents and students to come together and celebrate back-to-school. To kick off the school year, the center will be hosting two exciting events with makeovers, photo booths, discounts and more.
On Saturday, August 12, and Saturday, August 19, from 12 – 4 p.m., shoppers are invited to take part in special back-to-school events happening on the second floor near Lush. The events will be filled with fun activities and stations, including a complimentary photo booth, princess and mini makeover stations, special entertainment, snacks and sampling from participating retailers. JCPenney is also offering haircuts during the event on Saturday, August 19.

Komen table available during both events for shoppers interested in making a donation to the organization. The first 50 people to donate funds will receive a special goodie bag.
“At Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall, we want the back-to-school experience to be meaningful to both parents and students,” said Ashlee Schneider, director of marketing and business development. “We’re thrilled to host these fun events for kids and parents to connect, enjoy the last few days of summer, and gear up for the coming school year.”
