Freshers set for shopping treat

With two weeks of non stop partying in Freshers fortnight, you’d believe life couldn’t get any better for the students of Preston, right?


Wrong, as the vibrant town centre of Preston’s shopping scene boasts a wide range of high street shops, catering for the fashion conscious individuals that form the student population in Preston.

It’s these high street shops which are hosting Student Lock in evenings in the months of September to October, to allow students exclusive discounts on their favourite brands from their favourite leading fashion retailers.

The first two consecutive days which will be circled, highlighted and re-circled by passionate, fashion loving students, as two of the most important dates in their diary, is Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th September, held at no other than a store which is internationally recognised for it’s dedication to fashion, Topshop.

If you keep dreaming about those must have skyscraper heels seen on the catwalks of London Fashion Week, or you are in love with the collection inspired by leading fashion icon Kate Moss or even if your wardrobe would just look great with yet another knitted jumper preparing you perfectly for the autumn/ winter months, then why not put the rest of your student loan to good use by heading down to your local Topshop store in Preston, located on 125-127 Fishergate.

You can expect to receive an exclusive 20% discount on the two consecutive nights with valid proof of student I.D (the corporate card for all UCLAN students), find out more on the night about the “super cute shopper” if your payment reaches £50 or more at the till or why not log on line now to take part in a competition that could see you receiving a £500 shopping spree, that would leave all your friends turning green with envy.

A week later, on Tuesday 5th October, St George’s shopping centre is holding its third annual Student lock in, enticing Preston’s students with distinctive discounts, fabulous freebies and cool, captivating competitions that will, at a glance, see every attendant of Student Lock in with their fingers crossed, a 3 second silence that will last a lifetime and a gasp of excitement as each winner is announced.

Lying in the heart of Preston town centre, St George’s shopping centre varies from high street shops such as Marks and Spencer’s for all your essentials from food to clothing; so why not make an early start on those extra important Christmas presents and electrical shops such as The Sony Centre, where you’ve had had your eye on the latest technology; a new Cybershot camera or a VAIO Laptop for your studies.

So grab your purse, your friends, your shopping list and set reminders on your phone because for these three nights only, armed with your valid Student I.D, you could receive items for a fraction of the price in your favourite high street shops.

Students love shopping. Students love discounts. Students love Student Lock In.
