Running from February 1st through the 8th, Citadel Outlets will be honoring the ancient Chinese “Red Envelope” gifting tradition by giving away red envelopes filled with gift cards and center promotions at the Customer Service Center. Interested shoppers can join in the fun by saying the phrase “Xin nian kuai le” or “Gong xi fa cai” which means “Happy New Year” to receive a complimentary red envelope. The tradition, symbolizing good luck and well wishes for the New Year, is a gift from Citadel Outlets to express appreciation for the center’s wonderful shoppers and guests from all over the world.

From January 18th through February 14th, all center visitors who travel to or from Los Angeles on Air China will have the opportunity to present either their Air China boarding pass, flight itinerary or Phoenix Miles card and receive a complimentary tote bag that will include store gifts, as well as complimentary access to the center’s VIP Luxury Lounge featuring comfortable seating, cable television, WiFi access, snacks, beverages and concierge services.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Air China,” said Cynthia Schmitt, Director of International Sales & Marketing. “This relationship has given the center the opportunity to honor our Chinese tourists and provide additional amenities to their destination shopping experience.”
