Christmas at Chadstone
Truth be told, this is one year we’ve been yearning to hear the piped tones of ‘Jingle Bells’, and would likely not tut at the Christmas lights being switched on extra early. So it’s good news that Chadstone – The Fashion Capital has already begun heralding in the festive season.
Celebrations are ramping up with Chadstone’s Light, Sound and Snow Show, which will be staged from December 9 until December 23. The famous Gridshell roof will come alive every hour from 7pm onwards, and you should expect light displays, festive music and even a smattering of snowfall.
To make things even easier, from December 1 you can use the Chadstone Gift Guide for hundreds of ideas, using its filters to zoom in on gift categories, or your budget, or even the recipient – such as a baby, a work colleague, your dad, Kris Kingle and more.
There’s also extended shopping hours from December 6, giving you access to more than 500 stores to kit your Christmas out with everything from gifts to table settings, decorations and fresh food.
If shopping still overwhelms you, take advantage of Chadstone’s Premium Guest Services. Valet Parking ($20 weekdays, $40 weekends and public holidays) allows you to ditch your wheels right at the entrance and hand over the keys to the attendant. As you shop, everything you buy is picked up by the team and delivered to your vehicle – which will, of course, be waiting for you when you’re done. If you don’t want to take advantage of the valet parking, you can still use the Hands Free Shopping service for $10 – your purchases will be collected and stored safely so that you can pick them up when you leave.
One more excellent service available: Personal Styling. Chadstone’s stylists can guide you through the stores most suited to your tastes to give you a wardrobe refresh or just come up with the perfect looks for the festive season. The packages start at two hours ($375) and include valet parking and hands free shopping.
Is ‘free’ about more your budget? That’s cool. On December 9 at 8.30pm, there’ll be a fireworks display – so book that date in your diary for some late-night shopping with a bang.
