An independent consortium of local Penarth retailers is tonight re-launching Penarth’s Late Night Shopping Event starting at six o’clock this evening (18:00 hours) until 8 pm (20:00 hours).
Up until tonight the town’s “Late Night Shopping Evening” had been organised – with little success – by the Labour run Penarth Town Council who were so disappointed with last year’s poor turn out they pulled the plug on it and announced in September they would no longer be organising it.
The council’s withdrawal from the event left the field clear for local retailers to get together and organise the evening themselves – and tonight’s the night it all happens.
The aim is to create an atmosphere that all local families can enjoy and , the same time , to keep Penarth’s cash circulating in Penarth .
Many retailers will be offering special bargains and discounts (see poster above) and by no means all the special offers are being publicised in advance – so shoppers will need to be out and about tonight to grab the best bargains.
There will face painting to keep the kids entertained and live carol singing from Pen Y Garth Choir and the Penarth Community Choir .
