Do you prefer online shopping, or are you more of the brick-and-mortar type?

Both ways have their pros and cons, benefits and setbacks. I like to actually touch and/or try on what I am purchasing but the inconvenience of actually leaving my abode to deal with society can sometimes be cumbersome. However, once I have my purchase in my hands, I know I am safe from being invaded by porch pirates.

With that being said, as of this article being written, Wednesday, February 23, 2022, if you plan on heading out to The Walden Galleria be aware that the Cheektowaga Police will be conducting a lockdown of the shopping center, Thursday, February 24, 2022.

Do not worry, or be alarmed, this will only be a drill according to WGRZ

Again, this is only a drill. But if you are shopping around 11:15 am, lasting approximately 15 minutes, there will be announcements over the public address system notifying everybody already practicing their rights as consumers that it is only a drill. This will be one of four sets of drills conducted by the Cheektowaga Police,

It is no secret that the Walden Galleria has been the focal point of having some issues with the mod rules mentality, recently instating the Parental Escort Policy - (PEP) - MB-18. Anyone 18 years of age or younger must be accompanied by an adult.

So again, if you are out in the area, be mindful that this simulation will be going on being conducted by the local authorities.  Be safe and aware out there and happy shopping.
