Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- The only tough part about going to the mall, is you have to spend your own money, but the tables were turned tonight.

This is part of West Acres 40th anniversary. Along with live music, the mall gave away 4,000 reusable shopping totes and 4,000 cupcakes. They were gone in about an hour. Some of them had $40 gift cards attached.

There were also trivia questions. At stake were two $400 dollar gift cards.

Brad Schlossman - CEO of West Acres: "We're grateful for our customers. We wouldn't be here if not for customers. You know, we can do all we want to fill a great mall, but if the customers don't show up we're nowhere."

Willy Wonka was projected on the outside of JC Penny. Free chocolate bars were given away. Ten of them have golden tickets inside and one of those is worth a $1,000 shopping spree.
