Men's night at the KOP Mall

Thursday, December 08, 2011

With just 16 shopping days left until Christmas, one of the area's largest malls was catering to men--and only men Thursday night.

For many guys, holiday gift-buying is not one of their favorite past-times, but the King of Prussia Mall tried to make it as painless as possible.

The mall hosted real men who were really excited to be shopping!

It's the King of Prussia Mall's annual Men's Shopping Night, where Tom, Dick and Harry can feel free to shop like Samantha, Charlotte and Carrie.

And there's nothing like refreshments to ring in the holiday spirit at the registers.

"I told them this would help me spend money," said Andrew Vasco of the beer he held.

"I think you are more apt to get a bunch of guys together to say lets drink some beers than say, 'we're going to go shopping tonight,'" said Preston, from the Preston and Steve Show.

The Preston and Steve show also sent along some of Santa's helpers, just in case the mall felt about as far off as the North Pole.

Men are notoriously late shoppers," said assistant Marketing Director, Kate Johnson. "They wait until the last minute."

Mark Stonis' head was spinning in the sweater section, which is why guys need help shopping!

"It looks nice, I guess?" Mark said. "I have no idea."

But he found the perfect fit, and so did Andrew Vasco, who settled on a little something special in a little blue box.
