Cancel Your Plans, Shop BNE City Is Back To Take Your Money

A date with your city

By Astrid Taemets | 26th September 2022

Break open the piggy bank, Brisbane’s biggest and best shopping event is right around the corner. 

Yep, it’s that time of the year again when Shop BNE City takes over the town (and hold of our wallets) with epic retail offers, fashion workshops, pop-up bars for the thirsty, and a whole lot more over three jam-packed days. Comfy walking shoes come highly recommended. 

Taking over the town from Friday 7 to Sunday 9 October, city slickers will have access to 50+ offers from Queen Street Mall’s fave fashion, beauty, dining, leisure, and entertainment brands. Did someone say shopping spree?!

But the fun doesn’t stop there! The schedule promises more, more, more from style workshops with Queen Street Mall ambassador Annabel Falco, beauty masterclasses, limited-edition gift bags (when you spend over $300 in store at participating retailers), and in-centre activations, like DayDream – a fully immersive 90-second experience of light and sound presented by Wintergarden.

And if like us, shopping is your cardio, you’ll need to refuel along the way.  Thirsty? You won’t have to trudge far to fix that – the Aperol Spritz Spring pop-up bar outside Jimmy’s on the Mall is the place to stop, sip, and sit for a hot minute any time between 12pm until late before shopping up a storm. Oh, it’s a hard life!

With a goodie bag choc-a-bloc with sweet samples from Priceline, FluidForm Pilates, Tropicology, Skinstitut, We Are Feel Good Inc., Benefit Cosmetics, MECCA, Mr. Consistent, Girl and the Sun, LUSH, Bennetto Chocolate, Snow Fox Skincare, Elizabeth Picture Theatre, Byron Bay Cookie Company, The Tea Centre, Birchgrove Home, Isla In Bloom, Dash Water, Stefan, Mermade Hair, The Body Shop, Cue, and Veronika Maine, you better hope those biceps are ready to carry a whole ‘lotta loot!

It’s a full weekend packed with too-good-to-pass offers, with a stack more info on amazing deals and experiences just waiting for you to enjoy – all you need to do is check out the full event details here
