Now that summer is winding down, we should see foot traffic pick up a little more at Buffalo area malls, including the Walden Galleria.

Fall is on the doorstep and the holiday shopping season will be here before we know it. While many people shop for gifts online these days, there is nothing that can replicate going to a local store in person and purchasing a gift.

If you plan on going to the Walden Galleria this fall, you will find a new restaurant in there that is perfect for a large mall.

The Walden Galleria announced this month that Wetzel's Pretzels will be coming to the mall this fall.

Wetzel's is a national pretzel chain that is seen across many states and now will have a new home for Buffalonians at Walden Galleria.

According to WGRZ, the Wetzel's location will be on the top level, next to the Verizon store. Some customers have already seen the "coming soon" signs up.

Wetzel's will open 40 new locations this year and this location in Cheektowaga will be the first in Western New York.

There is nothing like a soft pretzel while shopping at the mall. It's become a tradition for many to grab one while getting holiday shopping done and now, there will be another option at the Walden Galleria.

Wetzel's also serves up a collection of drinks and even small pizza bites, so I'll be checking this national chain out when they finally open.
