This year for Valentine's Day, Lufkin Mall is giving their shoppers the opportunity to express their love publicly in their Valentine's Day contest. "Beginning Sunday, February 1st, we're going to be accepting Valentine's Day-oriented poems," said Jennifer Randall, Lufkin Mall Marketing Assistant. "The poems will be separated into two different age categories – child/young adult, and adult. The poems need to be on either a 5x7 or 8x10 sheet of white paper and either typed or in print. They'll be posted on a display wall located just outside of Beall's thru the 12th, when they will be removed so a panel of judges can choose the top three in each category. The winners will be notified on Friday that they placed and will receive their gift basket on Saturday, February 14th at 10:00 a.m. during a presentation at Center Court." She added that the baskets would include gifts from Bath & Body Works, Country Cookie, Chili's Grill & Bar, Red Lobster, and Lufkin Mall.
In addition to this fun-filled holiday contest, Lufkin Mall is also giving shoppers a free balloon bouquet. "February 11th – 14th, every shopper that spends $75 or more in same day receipts can go by the Lufkin Mall Customer Service Center and pick up a Valentine's Day balloon bouquet," Ms. Randall said. "The bouquet will consist of one themed Mylar balloon surrounded by solid color latex balloons." She added that Customer Service would also have a large assortment of Valentine's Day gift-wrap and bags for shoppers’ further convenience. "Our goal is to make Lufkin Mall your one-stop shop. With jewelers like Gordon's, Zale's, and Friedman's, and specialty stores like Victoria's Secret, Bath & Body Works, Gala Hallmark, and Country Cookie, we have everything you need to make your Valentine smile."
