Viejas Outlets Kicks off the Holiday Season
with the Opening of Southern California’s
Largest Outdoor Ice Rink and Special Store Hours
SAN DIEGO – November 9, 2013 – Viejas Outlets officially kicked off the holiday season today with the Grand Opening of Southern California’s largest outdoor ice rink, and the launch of special late-night store hours and promotions starting on Thanksgiving Day.
The location of the Viejas Outlets ice rink is perfect for the holidays, nestled in the foothills east of San Diego at an elevation of about 2,500 feet. “Our elevation provides a combination of mild temperatures with a bit of a nip in the air, which makes for great skating conditions and a wonderful holiday feel for shoppers,” says Viejas Outlets General Manager Peter Cortese.
The Viejas Outlets ice rink, which is larger than the world-famous Rockefeller Square rink, has quickly grown to become one the most popular holiday traditions in Southern California, with more than 33,000 visitors lacing up their skates on the nearly 10,000 square foot rink last season. November hours are Monday-Friday 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday noon to 10 p.m., with reduced pricing for groups, seniors and military. There’s also reduced pricing through December 4 if you bring a new, unwrapped toy for the Viejas Holiday Toy Drive, which benefits the local Salvation Army.

And shoppers can get a jump on Black Friday with Viejas Outlets “Beat the Madness” event when stores will be open with special pricing and promotions from 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day until 1 a.m. on Friday, November 29. And starting at 9 p.m. on November 29, one iPad will be given away each hour. Shoppers earn one entry for every $200 spent from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day. There will also be extended store hours on Saturday and Sunday. For more information on Viejas Outlets store hours, promotions and events visit www.ViejasOutletCenter.com or call 619-659-2070.
