If you’re a bargain loving student, this is where you need to be.

College is a time for learning, for expanding your knowledge in your chosen field and taking the first steps towards a long and prosperous career.

But it’s also a time in your life where you learn to eye a bargain like an absolute hawk.

Which is why if you’re currently a student, you need to get yourself to the Athlone Towncentre shopping centre on Thursday October 17th. From 4pm until 8pm there’s a student takeover going down, meaning participating stores will be putting on massive discounts for students. All you need to do is bring your student ID to be eligible for some seriously good deals.

And it’s not just for college students either, if you’re still in school just wear your uniform to prove you’re still living the student life.

Now it’s time for the kicker…

Love Island winner Greg O’Shea is perhaps the hottest property in Ireland right now, and he’s going to be in store from 6pm to 7:30pm on the night. There’ll be priority meet and greet wristbands available to the first 30 shoppers who spend over €50 at the student takeover event so for a guaranteed sighting of Greg make sure you get in early and get among the spending.

We’ll be there too playing tunes giving out our own discounts and spot prizes on the night.

Sound like your kind of night?

Keep an eye on athlonetowncentre.com/studenttakeover over the coming days for more details about the night. As well as the chance to grab exclusive discounts and to be in with a chance to win a €150 voucher to spend on the night.
