WISCONSIN RAPIDS — Christmas is starting early inside the Rapids Mall next week.
Bethesda’s Christmas Store will open their doors on Oct. 21, and will offer an array of holiday goodies, decorations, wreaths, ornaments, and much more. Their store hours will run Monday through Friday, 10AM – 6PM, and Saturdays, 10AM – 5PM.
“We don’t have enough room in our main store to put out all of the Christmas donations that we’ve had,” said Bethesda Volunteer Manager Chuck Weiss. “The community has been very good in donating a lot of stuff to us so we rented a second location in the mall.”
All proceeds will go towards the Bethesda community, which services the mentally and physically handicapped throughout the Midwest. The Rapids Mall is located at 555 W. Grand Ave.
