DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. -- Santa Claus will arrive at Arbor Place Mall in Douglasville this weekend, and he has some pretty amazing tricks up his sleeve.

Shoppers can now use a special "Santa App" that will allow children to write letters to Santa, receive replies, take a sneak peek into his North Pole workshop and even track his flight across the globe on Christmas Eve.

The app is free for download at the iTunes store and the Android Market.

Shortly after Santa's 10 a.m. arrival at the mall on Nov. 12, guests will be invited to join him for a special storytime, courtesy of the Douglas County Library.

Guests are also welcome to enjoy a Chick-fil-A breakfast with Santa on Saturday, Nov. 19. Kids ages 10 and under will eat for free with the purchase of an adult meal at the mall's Chick-fil-A restaurant. They will also get to spend time with Santa during this event.
