“With our newly expanded retail roster and family-friendly amenities, visitors can shop stress-free this holiday season” says Lisa Resnic, Marketing Director and Specialty Leasing, Hillcrest. “Hillcrest has transformed into a one-stop shop destination and an exciting place for kids to experience the holidays.”

Hillcrest is celebrating Black Thursday, Black Friday and Hanukkah with Gift Card Promotions.

Holiday shopping is set with the opening of Hillcrest’s north wing, complementing its south wing which opened in 2016.
