It may be tempting to go the less time-consuming route and hop on the computer to find all your holiday goodies, but there will always be something special about taking the time to drive to a store to select the PERFECT gift for your loved ones.

Some say that brick and mortar stores are going out of style. In King of Prussia, however, in-person shopping is alive and thriving, as evidenced by King of Prussia Mall sales exceeding those of pre-pandemic days as reported recently by The Philadelphia Business Journal. The mall is a shopping mecca, featuring everything from hugely popular high-end fashion brands to privately owned mom-and-pop shops. The addition of a photo op with the big Jolly Old Elf himself (TWO in fact, one in each section of the mall. Santa is magical like that.), beautiful decor and a whole lot of holiday spirit makes the experience of shopping at the mall a festive and fun family affair.

There is no shortage of incredible shopping centers in King of Prussia. With an exciting outdoor holiday atmosphere, including a giant decorated Christmas tree smack dab in the middle of the action, and a plethora of stores (and places to take a shopping break to stop for a quick bite or beverage) King of Prussia Town Center is another holiday-spirit-filled shopping experience. Do your shopping during Winterfest on December 11 to throw some exciting family-friendly activities into the mix.

Other shopping centers to check out around town are Valley Forge Shopping Center (224 W. Dekalb Pk.), DeKalb Plaza (330 W. Dekalb Pk.) and Courtside Square (150 Allendale Rd.).

While there are plenty of large, corporate owned stores to patronize, King of Prussia is also home to a surprising number of small businesses. Shopping small has a direct impact on the livelihood of individuals in our community, so your holiday purchases can make a huge positive impact. Check out our Small Business Directory!
