There other things besides all the candy, books and little stocking stuffers. You can pay less then $5 to talk on the computer with an elf. We just chose to get 5 hot choloates that seemed forever to get when it was just us at the time and 2 staff members.

At the time we went it was open only on weekends. It was a average candy store. It did have some activities for children. In and out on 10 minutes.

Closed on my visit. (9/21/16) Web site, glossy map, and Christmas Shop employees said nothing of it being closed. They pointed it out on the map!
