A NIGHT of bargains, giveaways, entertainment and sampling is planned to welcome students to Sunderland.
The Bridges has unveiled the details of its annual Student Raid, a special evening where those attending university or colleges across the region can take advantage of some great deals – and have a load of fun at the same time.
This year’s event is being held on Monday 26 September from 6.30pm until late, with stores across the centre extending their opening hours and offering a whole host of discounts.
Stores including New Look, River Island, Schuh and The Body Shop are offering a massive 20 per cent off on the night, while beauty favourites, Lush will be giving away free samples with every purchase.
Pandora, Ann Summers and Hotel Chocolat are among the retailers offering 15 per cent discount while new retailer, Laser Clinics, is offering a free microdermabrasion treatment with any booking for an aesthetics treatment.
And they are just some of the offers that will be available to anyone attending – offering the perfect opportunity to stock up on essentials to see everyone through the academic year or treat themselves to autumn winter fashion or a pair of trainers
The festival themed event will include free mocktails, competitions and goody bag giveaways, along with games and backdrops for the perfect “insta” moment.
Attending the event is free but students must register in advance to ensure they can gain entry on the night.
