Black Friday 


There will be a lot going on during Black Friday at The Woodlands Mall allowing shoppers to get a head start on finding the best Black Friday Deals. You’ll find 180+ stores at The Woodlands Mall including Department stores like Macy’s and Nordstrom and other favorites like Altar'd State, Lego Store, Lucchese Bootmaker, The North Face, and more. Have a music lover in the family? Newly opened ZT Records is a must-shop for new and used records, CDs, and cassettes! (If you get hungry there are plenty of places to stop and eat too!)

Of course, the start of the holiday season means Santa will be at the mall to meet with children! Skip the line by making reservations to see Santa. Shoppers can also adopt an angel from the Salvation Army Angel Tree. You can choose a child or senior from the tree and buy a gift for them to enjoy the holiday season. And, don’t forget, you can valet park at The Woodlands Mall so you don’t have to worry about finding a parking spot.
