Student Takeover heads to Sheffield city centre tomorrow

Sheffield City Centre Retail Forum, a consortium of retailers working together to promote retail in the heart of the city, have announced that they will be staging a Student Takeover to mark the new academic year.

Taking place on Tuesday 4th October, the event has been organised to welcome new and returning students, offering a one-off set of offers and giveaways to help promote the breadth and depth of retail located in the heart of the steel city.

Working in association with the Orchard Square and the Moor, two of the key retail destinations in the city, alongside a raft of popular anchor and independent retailers throughout the centre, the Retail Forum has organised over 25 ‘NOT TO BE MISSED’ offers for the inaugural Student Takeover.
