No matter where you go, December is the one month where everywhere is hustling and bustling. To make your seasonal shopping experience as seamless and relaxing as possible, we pooled together some of the best tips, tricks and ideas to consider at Square One. Happy shopping! 

USE THE PARKING MAP
Square One is home to one of the best interactive parking maps. With real-time parking availability, colour-coded to show you which lots have more vacancy, the map will give you ample time to pick and choose a parking area sans the stress factor. And, if you’re unsure of where lots are, you can use the maps app to direct you to a specific parking area from your location. Genius!

UTILIZE OUR HOLIDAY SERVICES
Winter weather can also equate to heavier jackets and more snow gear in general. Enter our complimentary coat and parcel check at the Merry & Bright Holiday Market. While you're there, take advantage of the gift wrapping services–it truly is your one-stop shop this season.

DO A LITTLE PRE-SHOP  
Promos are aplenty this month, so be sure to peruse our promos page prior to visiting to ensure you’re in the know of all the best retail offerings. 

POSE WITH SANTA DURING A WEEKDAY
If you can, consider snapping a photo with Santa during off peak hours. Weekdays, first thing in the morning, or early afternoon might be less busy in comparison to the weekend or evening rush!

CONSIDER VALET
If you’re in a mad dash to go in and out, or if you prefer extra service, opt for our valet service, available daily. You can even head to SQ1Valet.com to organize your pick-up from either the north or south side of the shopping centre, depending on where you are at Square One.
