Marketfair Mother’s Day Gift Guide

ICYMI: Mother’s Day is just around the corner! We’ve rounded up some great gift ideas from our Marketfair stores, perfect for every type of mom in Fayetteville and beyond! Make sure you plan ahead to have something special for mom this year.

For the Adventurous Mom: Hiking and camping season is upon us – surprise your nature-loving mom with a new pair of hiking boots or a tent for the upcoming summer season.

For the Movie-Obsessed Mom: Spend some quality time together with a one-on-one trip to the movies. If you’re an Amy Schumer fan, you’ll love her mother-daughter adventure in “Snatched,” coming out Mother’s Day weekend at Carmike Cinemas.

For the Active Mom: If your mom never misses her afternoon walk around the neighborhood, there’s no better way to say, “Keep up the hard work!,” than with a membership from Planet Fitness!

For the Indulgent Mom: Satisfy your mom’s sweet tooth with a candy gift basket. Rocky Fizz puts together a variety of gift baskets such as the “nostalgia” gift basket, which is sure to tug at her heartstrings.

For the Relaxed Mom: Thank your mom for all those times she’s pampered you by returning the favor. A manicure-pedicure treatment is the perfect way to spoil her!

For the Foodie Mom: If your mom is a foodie who loves snapping pictures of her food, treat her to excellent fine dining Indian experience at Marketfair’s newest restaurant, Tandoori Bites.

How We Said Goodbye to Summer!

Around 400 members of the Fayetteville community gathered to say goodbye to summer and hello to the new school year at our block party last weekend! We had a blast with everyone – from eating delicious free food from Which Wich and Mikoto Japanese Express, to visiting the complimentary face painting booth and playing outdoor games from Gander Mountain. 

Here’s a recap of some of the fun activities that went on and were made possible by our Marketfair shopping center stores: 

  • The Rocket Fizz soda tasting station and bottle ring toss game were definitely crowd favorites! The candy and soda pop shop also raffled off gift baskets and gift cards to a few lucky winners.
  • DJ Tommy King kept the party going with his fun mix of tunes!
  • Sports lovers enjoyed our interactive football and volleyball toss station provided by our newest tenant, Kids in Sports! Some raffle prize winners also went home with backpacks and gift cards!
  • Many guests left with other raffle prize winnings like free movie tickets to Carmike, gift cards, backpacks, a tablet from H.H. Gregg and free one-year memberships to Planet Fitness.

Thanks to everyone who came out and made this year’s Back-to-School Block Party a huge success! We are so grateful for everyone’s support – together we raised hundreds of dollars for our charity partner the Cumberland County District PTA Council, and we’ll also be donating another $1,000 on behalf of Marketfair. Here’s to a great 2016-2017 school year! 

 

Announcing Our Newest Tenant

Winter Storm Checklist

Winter storms can range from a moderate snow over a few hours to a blizzard with blinding, wind-driven snow that lasts for several days. Many winter storms are accompanied by dangerously low temperatures and sometimes by strong winds, icing, sleet and freezing rain. Regardless of the severity of a winter storm, you should be prepared in order to remain safe during these events.

Thankfully we rarely see major winter storms in Fayetteville, but it’s still a great idea to make sure you’re prepared for the winter with this handy checklist!

Stay safe and prepared with these tips and stock up on all necessities before the cold weather hits!

Making Your Healthy New Year’s Resolutions Last

For a lot of us, getting healthy is at the top of our list of New Year’s resolutions. Whether that means making hiking a new hobby or refining your diet, there are so many resources to help you reach your goals. We know it can be easy to slip into old routines after the first month or so of sticking to your resolutions, so as we head into February here are a few tips to make keeping up with your health plan easy and fun!

  • If you haven’t heard of Fitbit yet, it’s a wireless wearable device that tracks your activity throughout the day, but not just how far you ran one afternoon — it reports the quality of your sleep, the number of steps you take, calories burned and other personal metrics.
  • Exercising outside can be a great way to switch up your workouts if you’re getting tired of the gym. Try taking a walk around the block after work or bringing your yoga mat to a park this weekend!
  • Whether you plan on walking, running, cycling or lifting, one of the most important parts of starting any exercise routine is having the proper shoes.
  • Listening to the right music while you workout can really help keep you motivated and take your mind off the effort you’re exerting. Make a playlist of your favorite upbeat tunes and see how it affects your next workout!
