BROOKFIELD - On Wednesday, Brookfield Square announced the return of seasonal Callister's Christmas, as well as three new businesses to the mall.

All four retailers, Callister's Christmas, Halloween Express, Fro Zone and Sbarro, are scheduled to open soon.

Callister's Christmas is a seasonal Christmas store that carries thousands of ornaments, collectibles, gifts, florals and home décor for the holidays. Featured items include personalized and Old World ornaments, Department 56 villages, Snowbabies, Willow Tree and more. Callister's Christmas will open mid-October in a 3,960-square-foot space near Boston Store.

Halloween Express is a seasonal Halloween store offering a large selection of Halloween costumes, costume accessories, props, party supplies, home décor and decorations. Halloween Express will open mid-September in a 6,405-square-foot space near Barnes & Noble.

Fro Zone brings trendy Thai rolled ice cream to Brookfield Square, after a successful store opening this summer on Brady Street. Rolled ice cream is made by pouring a creamy, flavored base with chosen add-ons onto a surface that's minus 15 degrees. In about 30 seconds, the base starts to freeze, and then it's scraped into compact rolls with two spatulas, piled in a dish, and garnished with toppings. Fro Zone will open by the end of summer in a 678-square-foot space in the Food Court.

Sbarro has nearly 60 years of experience bringing Italian favorites to customers worldwide. Pizza, pasta and salad can be found on the menu. Sbarro will open this fall in a 793-square-foot space in the Food Court.

"We are thrilled to have both Callister's Christmas and Halloween Express join us this fall. ĘBoth stores offer unique, local flavor, and are destinations for Brookfield Square shoppers," said Scott Oleson, Brookfield Square Mall general manager, in a statement. "Fro Zone and Sbarro will offer additional choices for fast-casual diners as we continue to expand our dining options."
