Somerset Collection’s Iconic Castle Gets a Snow-kissed Revamp + More!

Somerset Collection’s Iconic Castle Gets a Snow-kissed Revamp in Time for Santa’s Arrival, November 19

Children’s Only Holiday Shop, 24 Days of Gifts & Surprises and Holiday Hours Announced!

Troy, Mich. – Somerset Collection’s beloved three-story holiday castle in North Grand Court got a new sprinkling of snow, and will be glistening and gleaming with the wonder of the Northern Lights when Santa arrives to greet thousands of children starting November 19.  Holiday shoppers will be dazzled by the revamped castle, which was first built for the Somerset Collection in 1996 and is now newly adorned with turrets covered in fluffy snow and glistening icicles. Once Santa arrives, the holiday hits will keep coming – on Dec. 1, Somerset Collection will open the Children’s Only Holiday Shop and the 24 Days of Gifts and Surprises start being revealed.

Santa Visits, Pictures and Magical Departure

Young visitors to Santa will be greeted by snow princesses in a glittering array of colors, as well as the Royal Reindeer Herdsmen in their fur-trimmed best.  Visits to Santa are available Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. – 6:55 p.m. and Sunday, noon – 5:55 p.m.  Photos with Santa are $30 for six poses and reservation can be made at www.thesomersetcollection.com seven days prior to the desired reservation date.

On Dec. 23 at 7 p.m., guests should look to the sky as Santa has a magical departure from Somerset Collection’s rooftop before he delivers gifts across the land and heads back to the North Pole.

Children’s Only Holiday Shop

While visiting Santa, kids can do their season’s shopping at the Children’s Only Holiday Shop opening Dec 1. on Somerset Collection North, Level 3 near Nordstrom.  The Children’s Only Holiday Shop allows kids to buy gifts for family and friends with assistance from Santa’s helpers.  The gifts will be wrapped in the store, allowing children to keep them a secret.  Cards for the shop are available at the Holiday Castle for a donation of $5 for five gifts.  All donations benefit local children’s charities. The Children’s Only Holiday Shop is open noon to 6 p.m. until December 23.

24 Days of Gifts and Surprises

On Dec. 1, the first of 24 Days of Gifts and Surprises will be revealed on Somerset Collection North, Level 2 near Macy’s.  Every day until Dec. 24, guests can check out the 24 Days of Gifts and Surprises for the special offer of the day.   The gifts and surprises range from $10 to $50 off at a specific store each day.
