During October, Susan G. Komen’s More Than Pink initiative will be supported by discount pass programs, gift cards and special gifts with donations.
At Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, shoppers who make a $10 donation to Komen during the month of October will receive a discount pass, valid at 20 participating retailers, including Kate Spade New York, Macy’s and Nordstrom. Plus, guests who make a donation to Komen at Guest Services will receive a complimentary cosmetic bag filled with beauty items from participating retailers.
At both Fashion Centre and Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets, Simon will donate $1 to Komen for each specially marked Visa Simon Giftcard purchased.
