December has finally arrived and Christmas is barrelling down on us with the speed of reindeer pulling a sled.
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?
