There other things besides all the candy, books and little stocking stuffers. You can pay less then $5 to talk on the computer with an elf. We just chose to get 5 hot choloates that seemed forever to get when it was just us at the time and 2 staff members.

At the time we went it was open only on weekends. It was a average candy store. It did have some activities for children. In and out on 10 minutes.

This is a small castle like structure with a wide variety of candy choices. There is commercial candy, fudge and gourmet popcorn. There are some picture opportunities in the front of the store with a sleigh and some elf pictures. If you have small children they can e-mail Santa a letter on a computer, otherwise this is just a candy... More

Closed on my visit. (9/21/16) Web site, glossy map, and Christmas Shop employees said nothing of it being closed. They pointed it out on the map!

We are so sorry you missed us. Our website states we are currently closed on weekdays. The glossy maps printed by our visitor's bureau do not list hours of operation for any attraction. The Santa Claus Christmas Store is a separate business with their own employees we don't manage - but we apologize they weren't aware of our hours. We... More
