The Shops at Hilltop will host a Chinese New Year celebration from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 3, that will feature dragon dancers, live music, food trucks, craft vendors and more.
The shopping center at 2200 Hilltop Mall Road is again partnering with the Food Emporium, Richmond’s community-driven version of Off-the Grid, to hold Saturday’s festivities. Patrons wanting to take part are advised to enter via the 24 Hour Fitness side.
Rebranded from Hilltop Mall to The Shops at Hilltop, the struggling shopping center is under new ownership that has both short term and long term plans to revitalize the property. That has involved inviting community members to open up shop at the mall such as R&R Coffee, the Food Emporium and a pop up children’s book store. See this recent report by KRON4 News on the changes.
