Our top tips for Black Friday Weekend
It's the biggest shopping event of the year, with huge savings to be had across department stores, exclusive flagships and your favourite local Rundle Mall destinations. To make the most of the discounts, you'll need to be prepared - so we've curated these handy tips for shopping Black Friday Weekend in Rundle Mall.
1. Visit the Rundle Mall Concierge
Consider the Rundle Mall Concierge, located at the Gawler Place Canopy, your one-stop destination for everything Black Friday Weekend. With a handy complimentary bag drop, free cocktail for the first 100 shoppers, a lounge to rest and recharge, and stop to hail the Rundle Mall Concierge buggy, make it your first port of call before setting off to shop.
2. Create a plan of attack
The sheer amount of offers, sales and discounts to navigate can be overwhelming. Browse the full list of Rundle Mall offers and make a hit-list of the key stores you need to visit, with a reminder of what you wanted to shop at each store. If you think the item you desperately want might sell out quick, plan to get in sooner rather than later. Not sure where to start? The Rundle Mall Concierge team can point you in the right direction.
3. Arrive prepared
A good Black Friday Weekend shopper knows comfort is key - ensure you're prepared with a hat, sunscreen, comfortable shoes, a water bottle, and your phone. If you're planning on trying on clothes, come dressed in something that's easy to change in and out of. Don't forget your shopping list!
4. Enjoy yourself!
There's plenty to see and enjoy in Rundle Mall this Black Friday Weekend along with the shopping hot-spots. With sweet treats from pop-ups along the Mall, including Sassi Ice Cream and The Cannoli Box, coffee from Deja Brew and live DJs all weekend, you won't want to miss a thing!
5. Check off your Christmas list.. and something for yourself
Now is the best time to grab gifts at a bargain price, so make sure you've worked out who you might need to buy for. Got a work Kris Kringle on the horizon? Bon-bons to fill for Christmas Day? Need something to post to Aunty Jen? Forget the stress of online delivery delays and make sure you get everything ticked off in one go - without forgetting yourself, of course!
6. Plan how to get here
Take advantage of the Black Friday Weekend parking offers, ensuring you can easily navigate your way to Rundle Mall. Shopped 'til you dropped? Hail the Rundle Mall Concierge buggy to give you a lift back to your car park. If you're making the most of public transport, take note of the schedule so you have enough time to collect your bags from the Rundle Mall Concierge before heading home to unbox all your goodies.
7. We're still cool!
Plan ahead for balmy November afternoons in the Mall, and make sure you stay hydrated, wear a hat, reapply sunscreen if you're outdoors for an extended period of time, and bring your shades. Feeling the heat? Take refuge in the beautiful air conditioning inside stores, take a break at a one of Rundle Mall's hundreds of dining destination and enjoy a cool drink, grab an ice cream from the Sassi Ice Cream pop-up, or take a load off at the Concierge Lounge under the Gawler Place Canopy.
