A shop assistant in New look claimed the event “was so busy once that we had to call security because people were getting pushed”.
She also claimed that the event does however “benefit the business” and that they “take a lot of money.
In addition to discounts, the first 50 students will receive a gift card for money to spend at the event.
Staff member at Jack Jones mentioned that as well as a 25% discount there will also be “free giveaways” and “a chance to find a dog in store to win freebies”.
At the event there will be a live DJ on site, the DJ’s will also be handing out spot prizes during the night for those who stand out.
