It might still only be November but Christmas is barrelling down on us with the speed of reindeer pulling a sled.
Halloween and Bonfire Night are over for another year and it won’t be long before all the festive decorations have been put up.
While plenty of people will get the Christmas shopping done and dusted well in advance of December 25, for some of us it often ends up being a last-minute job.
So if it rolls around to December 23 and you still haven’t picked up that perfect gift for someone special in your life – then you may have to brave the stores.
Gunwharf Quays, the waterfront outlet shopping centre in Portsmouth, may end up being the destination for your last-minute Christmas shopping scramble – or maybe you want to get out and make the most of the Boxing Day sales.
Here are the opening times over the Christmas period at Gunwharf:
December 2 to December 22
The shopping centre will operate its usual opening times – so 10am to 8pm on weekdays, 9am to 8pm on Saturdays and 10am to 6pm on Sundays.
So you can swing by after you’ve finished work for a spot of late night shopping or make a day of it on the weekend.
December 23 – January 1
The hours will be slightly adjusted over the Christmas and New Year period:
- December 23 – 9am-8pm
- Christmas Eve - 9am-6pm
- Christmas Day - closed
- Boxing Day – 9am-7pm
- December 27 – 9am-8pm
- December 30 – 9am-8pm
- New Year’s Eve – 9am-6pm
- New Year’s Day – 10am-6pm
Will you be doing your Christmas shopping well in advance? Or will you wait until the last minute?
