Calling all night owls – one of Brisbane’s biggest shopping precincts is staying up late!
For many of us nine-to-fivers, late-night shopping is something of a divine miracle sent from the heavens as a small reprieve from the hell of trying to cram everything into lunch breaks and weekends. With Christmas approaching at an anxiety-inducing rate, it’s important to be aware of everything we can do to save both time and money. This is why we practically jumped for joy when we found out that from Thursday November 23, Skygate and DFO Brisbane will be easing our festive woes with some late-night trading action.
Skygate and DFO Brisbane’s late-night trading has been introduced to make our Christmas shopping experiences vastly more convenient and less expensive – two concepts we can definitely get behind. The shopping precinct known for its designer discounts and whopping sale events has answered the prayers of weary shoppers everywhere by extending trading from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm on Thursday nights in November and 9:00 am to 9:00 pm in December. These extra hours are pretty crucial leading up to Christmas and through to the new year, so this Thursday late-night trading will be running through until December 28.
As well as DFO Brisbane going late-night for the season, Skygate Dining will also be extending its hours because we all know that shopping on an empty stomach can lead to major post-purchase regret. There will be live music happening at Skygate Dining from 5:00–8:00 pm on Thursdays to lend a chilled out vibe to what is traditionally a chaotic time of year. Oh, and did we mention that Skygate is home to Queensland’s only 24-hour Woolworths? So if the only time you have available to nab your festive grocery haul is 2 a.m., that’s not even an issue. When you add the fact that DFO Brisbane is a diamond in the rough in terms of being one of the only shopping centres with free parking, this Christmas shopping deal is well and truly sealed.
