Santa Pays Special Visit to Louisiana Retailer 

Spreading holiday cheer and posing with children and family pets, Santa Claus made a special stop in Cut Off, Louisiana, to visit Melaco Sisters Hardware & Supplies

“Santa’s extra-special visit was more than just a festive event—it embodied the true spirit of the season,” says Lauren Melancon Guidry, CFO. “The joy and laughter that echoed through our store created an unforgettable celebration, filled with holiday magic, cherished moments and festive delights.”

The Melaco team partnered with local businesses for a magical experience, including a winter wonderland backdrop, professional photography services and digital prints and food options throughout the event. 

“Witnessing families come together, capturing smiles on children’s faces and even welcoming family pets for photographs added a unique touch to our holiday festivities,” says owner Vanessa Pierce. “We’re grateful to have been a part of such a joyous occasion that not only brightened the spirits of those who attended but also strengthened the bonds within our community.”
