Santa sets up shop in Joplin’s Northpark Mall

JOPLIN, Mo. — The big man in red was at Joplin’s Northpark Mall.

Santa Claus himself has set up his workshop in the JC Penney court.

Kids can visit Santa Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sundays from noon to 2:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

That way he’ll have enough time to make sure all of the gifts are ready to hand out around the globe.
