The busiest shopping day of the year is just around the corner - and a Sunderland shopping centre is preparing to take on the masses.

A whole host of retailers, the majority open until 7pm, will be offering their best bargains yet throughout the day, which this year lands on November 27.

Some shops will even keep their doors open until 10pm to give everyone a chance to get in.

If you're not after a bargain but still fancy hitting the shops, the Bridges is running its gift card giveaway for the second year.

If you spend more than £100 at a late night shopping evening, you can pick up a £10 gift voucher.

Andy Bradley, centre director, said: "Black Friday is growing in popularity every year and we know that our retailers are pulling out all of the stops to offer some irresistible bargains.

“It’s the perfect opportunity for everyone to come and enjoy what the Bridges has to offer – especially as we’ll have some exciting new retailers in the centre by then."

From December 7 until December 23, the centre will be open from 8pm throughout the week to provide the best hours for keen Christmas shoppers.

During this time, you can also park for free in the Bridges car park from 5.30pm until 9pm.

If you fancy visiting Santa Claus took, pop along to the centre's Central Square from November 12. Entry to his grotto is £1.50, with 50p going to Rotary SR1.
