This Christmas, Main Street Shopping Complex will once again create a magical atmosphere around Paola’s square with the setting up of a 12m Christmas tree that will illuminate the square until January. The tree, together with various other new Christmas light decorations produced and installed by Paola’s band clubs and associations, were inaugurated during a special event by Paola’s mayor Dominic Grima and Bettina Azzopardi on behalf of Main Street Complex plc.
The Christmas tree and decorations will offer a one-of-a kind Christmas experience for families and people of all ages who will visit Paola during the festive season. Being the third most popular shopping destination in Malta, those visiting Paola during December can also enjoy and spend time in the large pubic open space of Paola’s square which was completed earlier this year.
Bettina Azzopardi said that “2018 was an excellent year for Main Street as it has experienced the highest footfall since its opening with more than 800,000 people walking into the complex during the past 12 months. The decision to turn into a public company and give the opportunity to individual investors to become shareholders has also been a success. All this encourages us to keep investing not just commercially but also by supporting the local community. Over the years, we embarked on various initiatives to help different organisations and charitable institutions, and this Christmas tree is one way of showing thanks towards the community who have always been a part of what Main Street represents. We hope that all those who will be in Paola during this festive season will enjoy the special Christmas atmosphere that has been created in the new Paola square. It’s an experience that brings the Christmas spirit to life!”
