CRESTWOOD, MO (KTVI)-- It's something you'd never expect to see, a mall Santa without a mall. Call it a sign of the times.
This maybe one of the saddest sights of a struggling economy and even more depressing than a empty mall during the holiday season, a mall Santa without a mall.
With most of the stores closed. This year the Crestwood Mall will have no Santa.
It’s not easy for this Santa without a mall but he is still not ready to hang up the red suit.
He picks up a few Santa jobs here and there.
For now this mall's Santa is gone. But he hasn't left Crestwood.
This Santa is still waiting for a phone call for a chance to bring his Christmas magic to all.
