Big Business for Small Kiosksby Molly Priddy
Kalispell, MT – With six days until Christmas, the Kalispell Center Mall was a hive of activity, with cars and trucks pulling into the parking lot in the dreary, rainy weather, their occupants bustling in the mall doors and heading off to find those perfect gifts. The mall was decorated for the season, with garland and strings of lights and Christmas trees, and Santa himself waited to hear the wish lists of the smallest shoppers. Being a shopping center, it’s a given that the mall would be busy during the holiday gifting season. But adding some extra business to the mall are the holiday kiosks, set up in the empty walkway space between storefronts.
