Business was booming inside Crompton Place shopping centre, after normal shopping hours, during the dedicated student event.

There were a whole host of discounts and freebies for the youngsters to take advantage of including free pizza, beauty treatments and special offers from retailers at the centre.

Lisa Keogh, who has been Manager of The Fragrance Shop in Crompton Place for four years, said: We had a terrific evening and took an average days takings in two hours so it was well worth us staying open.

Not only was it great for sales but there was also a terrific buzz in the centre and we really enjoyed ourselves - as much as I think the students did!

Also pleased with the events success was Malcolm Angus, Crompton Place Manager, who said: We estimate around 500 students joined us for this special evening and the young crowd definitely brought a lively and fun feel to the evening. Everyone really seemed to enjoy themselves.

Our aim was to spend an evening engaging with our student clientele and show them all the great shops Crompton Place has to offer.

It was a great success and we have had some terrific feedback from our retailers so we are very hopeful about repeating the event again.
