We hope that you’ve put aside some time to start clearing out your wardrobe, as all signs are pointing towards a shopping spree – the Shop BNE City weekend is back! Taking place for one weekend only from Friday September 24 until Sunday September 26, this mammoth shopping event is set to take over Queen Street Mall with bargain buys, champagne-infused pop-ups, fashion workshops and beauty masterclasses. Eager for a sneak peek? Here’s what’s on offer …
Whether you want to get a head start on Christmas gifts, need to bail your way out of a style rut or you’re just a self-confessed shopaholic, Shop BNE City is the plain and simple solution to all of your shopping worries. Returning to The City in just a few weeks time, this year’s iteration of the beloved shopping event will give fashionistas, foodies and beauty fanatics access to more than 70 exclusive offers. You’ll be able to bag cracker steals from Queen Street Mall’s most frequented fashion, beauty, dining, leisure and entertainment brands as well as the chance to dive in to some exciting food and lifestyle pop-ups. Before bargain hunters go snapping up some dynamite discounts, there will be plenty of opportunity to fill up on some delicious drinkables at The Chandon Garden pop-up bar, where shoppers can get a taste of the new Chandon Garden Spritz inside an elegant oasis just outside Jimmy’s on the Mall. Hungry for more? Enjoy hawker-style bites at the BNEat Street pop-up located at the Queen Street Mall Stage, where delectable street food will line the mall alongside a heavenly selection of cocktails and live entertainment.
After you’ve got your feed in, it’s time to fill up on fashion and there’s no better place to do this than at The Fashion Hub. It’s inside this bespoke 20-foot shipping container (located just outside Mecca Maxima) where shoppers can immerse themselves in a bevy of free events including fashion workshops, beauty masterclasses and panel talks hosted by Queen Street Mall ambassador Annabel Falco and Tess Alexander. In addition to the killer savings from retailers (which will be revealed closer to the event date) and exciting events, shoppers will be rewarded with a special Shop BNE City gift with purchase over the three-day event. When spending $200 or more in any participating retailer, you will receive a limited-edition gift bag valued at more than $250 including goodies from beauty hub Mecca, decadent brownie slinger Dello Mano and sweet-smelling soap maker Lush as well as The Body Shop, Lorna Jane, Country Road, Seed, Queens Plaza, Wintergarden and Myer Centre.
There are many more festivities (and discounts) still to be revealed, so keep your eyes peeled on the Brisbane City website for more exciting announcements in the coming days.
