Check out 40th anniversary display at center stage

Hickory Point Mall is celebrating 40 years as an integral part of our community and as the engine that has attracted visitors to our community, and in turn, driven our local economy.

The mall opened in the fall of 1978 on 170 acres of land that the Village and the mall’s developer negotiated and agreed on after the City of Decatur took a pass on the opportunity. The ribbon was cut by Santa Claus to officially open the new retail hub on November 15 in time for the holiday shopping season that year.

Today, visitors can visit a small display marking the mall’s four-decade history in Forsyth. Check out the display, along with a collection of photos, located near the mall’s center stage.

Visit Santa at Center Court

Santa Claus is coming to town, specifically to the mall. He plans to stay a while, beginning Friday, November 23 through Monday, December 24.

Santa’s hours this year are 10 a.m.-9 p.m., Monday-Saturday; noon-6 p.m. on Sunday. Also, don’t forget that Santa takes a break to feed his reindeer from 1-2 p.m. and again from 5-6 p.m. on Monday-Saturday; and from 3-4 p.m. on Sunday.

In addition, there will be pet photo nights on November 26, December 3 and 10: from 6-9 p.m. NOTE: All pets must be on a leash or in a carrier.
