Holiday shoppers who want to get a head start and also help a local drug awareness program can visit McKinley Mall from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday for a special, one-night-only shopping experience.
Shoppers who purchase tickets to the event will be eligible for special deals and discounts at participating retailers, including Kaufmann's, Bon-Ton, Sears, JCPenney and specialty stores throughout the mall.
All proceeds benefit the Western New York United Against Drug and Alcohol Abuse Foundation. Tickets are $5 and are available at the McKinley Mall, all Evans National Bank branches, and at the door Sunday night.
Besides the discounts and special deals, there will be finger foods, free gift wrapping, "elf carry out service" and prizes.
Holiday Headstart is sponsored by the McKinley Mall, Evans National Bank, Adelphia, Star 102.5 and Dipson Theaters.
