New Mexico Highlands University will host a “Shop Small Mall” on Dec. 1 as a way of encouraging local residents to shop at local businesses this holiday season. 

The event will run from 5-8 p.m. in the Student Union Building Ballroom. Local small businesses are encouraged to reserve a table and set up a “storefront” for the evening with their inventory. 

To reserve a table, contact Linda Anderle at 

In addition to being able to shop local businesses in one location, there will also be door prizes available, as well as a free gift wrapping station, holiday music and refreshments in the parking lot on 8th Street outside the event.
