Santa Claus is coming to town ... and is set to land his sleigh at an Inverness garden superstore for socially-distanced fun and festivities.
From Sunday (November 22) until Christmas Eve at Dobbies, families will be able to visit a winter wonderland featuring faux reindeer and other animals before meeting the great white-bearded one at his grotto.
The firm stresses safety of customers and team members remains their number one priority approaching the Christmas period, with a number of protective Covid-19 hygiene measures in place.
Those visiting Santa’s grotto will be required to wear a face covering in the store, and Dobbies will insist that customers come prepared with their own mask.
The grottos will be open spaces with online booking to manage capacity. There will also be scheduled cleaning carried out regularly throughout the day.
Tickets are priced at £11.99 per child and include a visit to Santa’s grotto and a gift.
Santa has selected a range of toys, suitable for different ages, with children invited to select their own present.
One of Dobbies’ most popular Christmas events, tickets for Santa’s grotto are said to be selling fast with families encouraged to book at dobbies.com to avoid disappointment. To book your visit or to find out more, visit dobbies.com
