Pets are just as big a part of Christmas as people – and Brimbank Shopping Centre is happy to be proving it.

Families have one more chance to get their pets photographed with Santa ahead of Christmas.

Centre manager Linda Vella said it was great to welcome more family members to get involved in the Christmas spirit at the centre.

“We are really excited to introduce pet photos with Santa for the first time,” she said.

“We believe pets are a big part of the family in the Brimbank community and everybody should get the chance to meet Santa. We are sure the fur-baby photos with Santa will be adorable and will make beautiful and fun gifts.”

The final chance for Santa pet photos will be on Wednesday, December 6, from 5.30-7.30pm. Bookings are essential on 9363 5188.

The pet portraits are just part of the centre’s festive season offerings. The 12 Days of Christmas promotion has a week to run and involves a giant advent calendar opening a door each day to reveal Christmas deals.

Customers will be able to open doors on their own advent flyers each day to reveal special offers. Customers can fill in the back of the flyer and submit their calendar for chances to win prizes, depending on how many stamps they receive.
