Feel free to take pictures with the bunny and your kids…and even a selfie! Have fun shopping for a change! See you Saturday!

There is so much fun about this season. The first day of spring on March 20 brings us all a renewed sense of hope that the dreary days of winter will soon be behind us. The flowers are blooming, the grass is turning greener and the trees are budding out. And of course, the Easter bunny is on his way!

The Easter Bunny and his eggs have been associated with the Easter holiday for centuries. One reason is because eggs are symbolic of new life, which we see through the renewal of the natural world around us but also in the Christian belief that Jesus brings new life in God through his resurrection.

People celebrate Easter in many different ways, including going to special church services, hosting Easter egg hunts and having family get-togethers. Of course, there’s always a lot of shopping to be done to prepare for this grand occasion! Maybe your family has a tradition of eating Moravian sugar cake on Easter morning, or wearing a new outfit to church on Easter Sunday. Perhaps you’re looking for new outdoor equipment to help enjoy the beautiful spring weather and some outdoor time during spring break. Or maybe you’re hunting for a special surprise for a child’s Easter basket.

Whatever you’re looking for, Thruway Shopping Center is the place to go for all of your Easter and spring shopping needs. You’ll find great ideas for Easter basket gifts, surprises to hide inside eggs, new spring fashions for the whole family and great food to prepare for all of your events.

In addition to the wide selection at the stores within Thruway Shopping Center, we also have a special visitor — the Easter Bunny will be visiting on Saturday, March 24, from 12 – 3 p.m. Be sure to bring the kids while you’re shopping for Easter supplies, so they get a chance to visit with the Easter Bunny. He will be handing out special eggs filled with candy and posing for pictures. It’s a great photo opportunity to share on Facebook or for a family keepsake.

We know that shopping with little ones can sometimes be challenging, when they get tired or bored. The Easter Bunny helps bring a little excitement to the shopping trip, keeping kids entertained while you get everything you need for a great spring. Thruway Shopping Center is all about making shopping fun, for the whole family.
