One of the worst things about shopping during the Christmas season is finding a parking space. First you have to find a space, remember where you parked after you’re finished, and most of the time, feel like you’re on a 10 mile hike from your space to the mall entrance.

Sunland Park Mall wants to make things easier on you by offering valet parking. It was launched on November 23, and is available three days a week. It costs $7 per vehicle. The service is available Fridays, 4-11 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m.-11 p.m.; and Sundays, noon-8 p.m.

Sunland Park Mall officials say they feel like more and more shoppers will want to take advantage of this service as Christmas shopping time winds down before the big day next weekend.
Many cities already offer the valet service not only at malls but at other shopping venues as well, such as grocery stores.

If you want to valet your car while you shop at Sunland Park Mall, go to the mall's main entrance near the Greenery Restaurant between Sears and Macy's. You can also find a valet at the food court entrance on the mall's upper level, between the Cinemark Movie Bistro and the Forever 21 store.
