Pottsville, Pa. Center Offers More than Just Shopping
POTTSVILLE, PA., April 21, 2014 – With its convenient location and diverse mix of retailers, Fairlane Village Mall is one of Schuykill County's favorite shopping destinations. The mall also is a valuable community asset, serving as a venue for a variety of year-round programs, fundraisers and special events.
"Fairlane Village Mall truly is a centerpiece of the community," said Heather Stine, the mall's director of marketing. "Our loyal guests enjoy coming to Fairlane Village Mall not only to shop, but also to participate in the many exciting community events that take place here."
