It is as early at 10am on a Saturday, tons of people were gathering at the Ground Floor entrance of Parkson 1Utama. Say what? It’s The Weekly’s Shopping Weekend, the most anticipating shopping event jointly hosted by The Malaysian Women’s Weekly and Parkson.
I don’t want to be left out and went there with BFF to join the fun. It is a shopping event with exclusive deals for The Weekly readers. The invite above is attached along with The Malaysian Women’s Weekly magazine of October 2012 issue. It was held at Parkson 1 Utama just last Saturday and Penang will be on this coming Saturday, 13th October.
Wondering why tons of people queued patiently? There were free goodie bags worth MYR200 to be given away to only for the first 1,000 readers. First come first serve basis and only one redemption per person. Its an open event where anyone could join as long as you have the invitation and The Weekly team has been thoughtful by setting up a booth selling the magazine. Everyone could join in immediately!
The exclusive discounts were up to 50% and more on selective items. Some of the deals has already been printed out on the invitation, readers get to peek on the deals first. At the same time, beauty pampering sessions are all over including basic makeover by Kanebo for first 50 who registered, Kosé full makeover + photoshoot (photo printed for participants) with the purchase of MYR180 and above, eye mask pampering session by Talika and there’s maybe more that I might have missed out.
Spin the wheel with the most of your luck and instantly win a mystery gift! One receipt per spin and prizes are from selective category from beauty, fashion, food and beverage.
Not to forget the lucky draw! With any purchase of a single receipt, shoppers will just have to fill in the lucky draw form to get themselves to participate the draw. The most attractive prize for this? It’s the Burberry fragrance set worth MYR500 and only ten per location for grabs! Four shoppers will be selected in every hour.
There was also special demo of Philip Avent Steamer & Blender where it steams the food and blend till its fine enough and suitable for baby consumption. There were samples given away and don’t judge from the bland colours, its actually delicious!
On the other side, another beauty pampering session spotted. It’s the Bloop Nail Art where many were trying their magnetic nail polish and I had mine done too. The only thing I wished for was some seats for people who were waiting, it was a little tiring to wait and it also cluttered the walkway.
The final lucky draw was at 6pm and some shoppers returned with the hope of bringing something back home. Prizes includes the Burberry fragrances, hot pink tote bag with organizer from Gin & Jacqie and products from Célmonze.
The final prize is a Carlo Rino shoulder handbag won by Ms Cerlyn!
The next venue will be at Parkson Gurney Plaza, Penang on this Saturday (13 October). Don’t miss it out and grab this month’s The Malaysian Women’s Weekly magazine or you could always purchase on the spot at the venue. I have a feedback from one of my readers saying,
The event was a great chance for many readers to get some goodies alongside pampering themselves. Its also a great time to see how well MWW organized their event. They ensure there is a queue and prepared a counter for people to buy their magazine last minute. Extra goodies and lucky draw for people who purchase makes it an even more unforgettable deal. – Angel Kee
