The Dolphin Shopping Centre in Poole is set to welcome shoppers to its new late night initiative, Shop & Sip, on Thursday November 30.

The event takes place from 5.30-9pm and entitles any visitor with a shopping receipt from the day of the event worth £25 or more (spent in one or more stores), to receive complimentary mulled wine and a mince pie.

Shoppers will be treated to a pop-up après ski style bar located just outside of Boots, where mulled wine and mince pies will be served.

 John Grinnell, centre manager at the Dolphin Shopping Centre, said: “It’s never too early to start your Christmas shopping and we hope to attract even more shoppers to our first Thursday late night Christmas shopping evening, with this special incentive.”

Shop & Sip requires shoppers to show a valid receipt at the après ski bar and ‘Challenge 25’ will be adhered to throughout the event. Shoppers will also have the chance to win a £50 gift card with Fire Radio on the night.

The Dolphin Shopping Centre will also be extending its opening hours for late night Christmas shopping on Thursday December 7, 14 and 21. Free parking will be available between 6-9pm on Thursday November 30 and Thursday December 7, 14 and 21 at town centre car parks (multi-storey and surface).
