The Dolphin Shopping Centre in Poole is set to host its fourth annual student night, in partnership with Student Shopping UK, on Monday September 26 from 6.30pm to 9pm.

The event has become renowned as the county’s ultimate discount shopping event welcoming thousands of students each year. The Dolphin Shopping Centre will be opening its doors after hours exclusively to students for them to enjoy an evening of offers, promotions, competitions and live music.

Many of the biggest high street brands, including New Look, River Island, Animal, Accessorize, Body Shop, Dorothy Perkins and Burtons, will be offering between 10 and 30 per cent discount. At the event, Beales will be introducing, for the first-time in its 135 year history, a student discount scheme and this will run on a permanent basis.

Other retailers will be offering free giveaways and promotions, with Boots and tReds handing out goody bags to the first 50 students and staff from Specsavers on-hand to offer free sight tests, a free contact lens trial and 50 per cent discount off selected frames.

For students wanting a break from shopping and to indulge in a sweet treat, Starbucks and Druckers will be offering a 10 per cent discount throughout the evening and Subway will be handing out free cookies.

Fire Radio will be providing entertainment on the night and will once again bring along its prize grabber where students can win vouchers from River Island, Wilko and Primark.

There will also be a scalextric racing competition, along with air hockey and ping pong tables.

John Grinnell, centre manager at the Dolphin Shopping Centre, says: “This has become an extremely popular annual event for the centre and we’re delighted to be able to exclusively open our doors to students. With a variety of leading brands participating we are expecting this year to be even bigger and better.”
