We all need something to brighten our spirits right now, and Desert Ridge Marketplace and Tempe Marketplace are helping us find the joy in a safe way.
Both shopping centers are re-hanging their Christmas lights and debuting them the night of Friday, March 20.
They say it will give families a reason to “get out of the house and enjoy something different from the safety of their own cars.”
A spokesperson for the centers said they’re the first Valley businesses to adopt the trend of putting up holiday lights to spread “light and hope in the face of COVID-19.”
Both shopping centers are still open and most businesses have chosen to remain open, with the exception of full-service dining options. They are “providing several hand sanitizing stations, clean and stocked restrooms, added employee training and ongoing and nightly sanitization of facilities.”
