Start drafting your wish list – Shop BNE City has dropped its sizzling array of offers
It’s that time of year again – the weather is starting to warm up, the florals are blooming and our favourite stores are filled with new-season fashion pieces that are just waiting to find a home in our wardrobes. If you need to elevate your springtime aesthetic with a shopping spree, then pencil Friday October 30 into your diary, as that’s when Shop BNE City kicks off its legendary weekend-long festivities.
Shop BNE City’s bargain bonanza is set to take over Queen Street Mall with amazing offers, jaw-dropping activations and loads of fabulous freebies. You’ll be able to fill your wardrobe with some shopping steals – there’s 15 percent off full-price items at sass & bide, 10 percent off all full-price items at Aje, 20 percent off full-price items at DISSH and 20 percent off at Viktoria & Woods. Bespoke tailor Wil Valor will help ready you for the festive season, throwing in a free shirt with any suit or jacket purchase, or you can pick up the perfect party dress (or two) with spend-and-save offers at Alice McCALL, Cue and Veronika Maine. No outfit is complete without the perfect accessories – you’ll find 25 percent off storewide at Wittner, nab a free gift with purchase at Furla, Jan Logan and Paspaley, or receive 20 percent off full-price items at Mimco.
Relax after running around the retailers and treat yourself to a facial from Ella Bache (they are 50 percent off!), or pop over to L’Occitane en Provence for a free gift. Need a dose of entertainment? Take a break from trying on new wardrobe pieces and challenge your shopping pal to a game of putt putt at Holey Moley where you can play nine holes for just $16, or suit up for an $8 game of laser tag at Strike. The good vibes continue at City Sounds Live Lounge, where local artists will play live and loud music sets across the weekend – for free!
To help you unwind after you’ve shopped up a storm, Shop BNE City has plenty of vibrant food and drink activations happening in the mall. If you’ve worked up an appetite, take a break with some ice-cold bevs and bites at the Queen St Mall Departures Lounge, sip botanical cocktails at the Gordon’s Sicilian Lemon Gin Bar or take a dip in NEXT Hotel’s pool – open to the public for the first time ever! Sip bubbly whilst you snack on gourmet lobster rolls and frites at Stanton’s Veuve Summer Picnic, and continue to indulge in the grape juice at City Winery’s new Cellar Door on Edward Street with a free wine tasting. If that’s not enough, foodie legends like Grill’d, PappaRich, Vintaged Bar + Grill, Vapiano and many more have plenty of special savings up their sleeves.
