Central Mall welcomes four-legged shoppers on Wednesday nights in August for newly launched Dog Days events


Shoppers in Texarkana may soon be taking a new route on their nightly dog walk. From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. each Wednesday in August, Central Mall is encouraging its shoppers to bring their pooches in for themed events.

The newly launched Dog Days program will test the markets’ receptiveness to a dog-friendly shopping experience with four themed nights:

  • August 5: Fashion Hounds – Let’s play dress up. Join Central Mall for a pet fashion show and costume contest.
  • August 12: Forever Homes – This pet adoption night is designed for humans looking to open their home to a dog in need. Stop by and help dogs from Central Mall find their forever families.
  • August 19: Bone-appétit – Get nutrition and fitness tips from local vets, sample food and more to keep your pup healthy from nose to tail.
  • August 26: Paw-Parazzi – Join us for pet photo night featuring a themed backdrop, props and pet costumes.

“Up to 47 percent of households in the U.S. have a dog and more than 14 states now have malls that are dog-friendly environments. We encourage shoppers to come celebrate their four-legged family members with a night out on the town,” said Justin Hamilton, Mall Marketing Manager
