We had some fun things happening at Burns Mall Shopping Centre this Festive Season, including School Choirs, facepainting, glitter tattoos and hair braiding, Selfies with Santa and his Happy Elf, and Music in the Mall performers.

The ‘Love Kilmarnock’ Shop Local Campaign for Kilmarnock Town Centre has now finished.
Burns Mall Shopping Centre, in conjunction with Town Centre Partners – Celebrate Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire Council, Kilmarnock Business Association and Ayrshire Magazine are delighted with the feedback and results for the Campaign.
The Campaign provided a great boost to the Town Centre during the Summer School Holidays, and a total of 26 shops were involved this year.
Shoppers were provided with Entry Forms at the point of sale for every spend of £5 or more in-store, and entered into the Weekly Draws.
Weekly prizes and Like & Share Competitions were held each week, and there have been 10 Lucky Winners throughout the Campaign!
The Provost of East Ayrshire Council drew the Grand Prize Winner at Burns Mall Shopping Centre, on Wednesday, 14th August. The winner was the lucky recipient of £250 Worth of Shopping Vouchers donated by the local stores.
In addition to this, the lucky winner also received a bottle of Johnnie Walker Red Label Whisky as a bonus prize, donated by The Provost himself.
A final total of 486 Entry Forms were received, and the total expenditure by shoppers was £20,372.90, with an average spend of £41.92 per person during the six-week period.
Burns Mall Shopping Centre, East Ayrshire Council and Celebrate Kilmarnock are committed to creating a vibrant, thriving and successful Town Centre that is located at the heart of the Community.
