CHERRY HILL, NJ (KTRK) -- A New Jersey mall is learning the hard way not to mess with a holiday tradition.
For years, Cherry Hill Mall has offered free visits with Santa Claus until mall management introduced a new high-tech Santa experience for 2015.
For $35 to $75, the mall said shoppers could enjoy an exciting new interactive event fit for the holidays.
Cherry Hill consumers balked, calling for a boycott of the mall on social media.
In the end, the shoppers won and the mall made Santa visits free once more.
