Henderson mall seeks to prepare families for new school year
HENDERSON, Nev. – August is just around the corner, which means it’s time for local families to start planning for the 2016-17 school year. (Clark County School District classes begin Aug. 29.) Luckily, the Galleria at Sunset — long known as the hub of Henderson, and the best in-door shopping center in the city — will host several back to school events so parents and students alike can get ready in style.
With its wide-ranging mix of shopping options, the Galleria’s goal is to be the one-stop-shop for the back-to-school season. From fashion, to community resources, and even giving back, each week will provide something unique for the public.
