Savvy student spenders set to shop up a storm

Discounts and more this week at High Chelmer

 Local students are invited to a fun-packed evening of fashion, entertainment and top-class discounts as High Chelmer’s unmissable shopping event returns.

To celebrate the new season and academic year, High Chelmer will host a very special evening of retail therapy on Thursday 27 September, with its free ‘Student VIP Night’. Members of the city’s colleges and university will have the Chelmsford shopping centre all to themselves from 6pm until 9pm for a chance to grab bargains and exclusive offers from a host of top retailers.

New Look, Blue Inc, Topshop, Topman, DW Sports, Boots, The Body Shop and Game are just a few of the names that will be offering savings of up to 50% on the night. “We have a wonderful student community here in Chelmsford, so what better way to welcome them back than with a fantastic shopping event dedicated solely to them?” said Mick McDonagh, centre manager at High Chelmer.

“The retailers have been preparing in earnest to make sure they’re fully stocked with the best collections and latest products.”

The evening extravaganza will also feature plenty of entertainment, freebies and some surprises added for good measure. There will be a DJ, photobooth and chances to win A* prizes including trampolining sessions and even a couple of mopeds courtesy of Safer Essex Roads Partnership. All this shopping and fun will be thirsty work, so guests can head to Colenzo’s where 2-for-1 cocktails and 50% off all food will be available.

“The event is free to attend but is exclusively for students aged 16 and over who attend any college or university,” added Mick. “Our student shopping night is always massively popular and registration for tickets is required. It’s advised to book a place ahead of the time as we’re expecting a large turnout and we don’t want anyone to be disappointed if we reach capacity on the day.

“There will be so much for everyone to enjoy that there’s no doubt our VIP guests are set to have a brilliant experience. All that’s left to say is we hope students have a great night out shopping with us.”

The High Chelmer ‘Student VIP Night’ will take place on Thursday 27 September from 6pm until 9pM. Discounts of up to 50% are available for shoppers aged 16 years and over with a valid NUS card. The event is free to attend but registration is required, with full details to be found at
