Extended Hours

December 20, 2014

For the rest of the season, we are open from 9 to 7 everyday, including Christmas eve, except Sunday. Our extended hours for Sunday are from 10 to 6. If you are in the door by that time, you will be served past the closing hours. The only day left for private sessions requiring appointments is Tuesday, Dec 23, and I am already booked up at 9, 11, and 2:30 with the rest of the afternoon going to the professional photographer. He will be in all day Saturday, Sunday, and Christmas eve and after 3 on Monday and Tuesday. For that, it is first come, first served according to who has registered first. The private sessions are using your own camera while Santa interacts with your kids, reading to them, etc, for a minimum of 15 minutes for $30. For the professional photos, instead of having to buy a pre-made-up bundle and a bunch of photos you don’t really want in order to get the ones you want, you build your own packages here. The basic building blocks are $15 for a 4×6 and $10 for each additional 4×6 and $20 for a 5×7 with $15 for each additional 5×7. There is $5 off for the larger packages you build and it may be negotiable for even larger packages. Thanks to all of you who have already visited us this year and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.

Montana Santa location for 2014

November 22, 2014

Santa’s sleigh has finally arrived and guess where we landed. Right back where we were last year, so it will be easy to remember. We are at 315 S 24th St. West in the Rimrock Mini-mall where we were last year. It is across from Starbucks, Simply.mac, and the Rimrock Mall. Just look for our giant inflated Santa. I know, I know I am running around in circles at that rate, ending up right back at where I started. But what can you expect from someone who goes around the globe all the time? Last year we really got slammed in the last few days before Christmas, which meant people had to wait more than we liked. In fact, 1/2 of you showed up on the last 4 days! Consequently we are trying to spread you all out more through the season. First we are extending the season by starting right after Thanksgiving, Nov. 28th this year. Also, our photographer is going to come in earlier, after 3 instead of after 4 on weekdays and will be there all day on week ends and Christmas eve. It will still be private sessions for you to take your own photos before 3 on weekdays, but call ahead to make sure I am available that day. Finally, this year we are offering an early bird special. If you come in between Nov. 28 thru Dec 12 or between Dec 15 thru 19, you will save $5 on your order. And Santa has a little something special for the first 100 children. Furthermore, if you do want to see if we can make Christmas cards for you this year, if enough people express an interest in doing it, you must get in by the 12th. Our hours will be the same as last year until Dec 20th : Monday thru Friday 10 to 7 plus, Saturdays 10 thru 8 plus, Sundays 12 thru 6 plus – but check our site to make sure we don’t have something going on that day like visiting a school or nursing home. We will have extended hours starting on December 20th, so check our Facebook or website for an update at that time.
