On Saturday morning, Brittany Rohleder planned to take her family out for a day of shopping. Her oldest daughter needed a new pair of shoes, and what better place to go than the mall where the 10-year-old had bought her first pair of heels?
The family visited Allen Premium Outlets mall a couple of times a year. It has the closest Children’s Place, and Rohleder said the mall has great deals. When she visits, her children beg for quarters to play on the boat rides near the store, and Rohleder’s husband likes to grab treats from Great American Cookies.
But things didn’t go as Rohleder planned that Saturday. As she put it, her family was blessed for being lazy.
“My younger daughter slept in for the first time in months, so her afternoon nap was delayed, and so we didn’t end up getting to go there,” Rohleder said.
