Are you planning to hit the sales in Aberdeen tonight?

The six-month project, which ends in March, is supported by Aberdeen Inspired as part of their efforts to celebrate the evening and night time economy Aberdeen city centre provides as well as encouraging residents to become tourists in their own city.

Speaking in October, Adrian Watson, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, said: “Essentially we’re looking to extend the day for the city centre, bringing people in and enjoying the night time economy.
“We’ve looked elsewhere at Newcastle and we’ve seen opportunities here where if you give enticements such as free parking then that has a real positive effect on numbers coming in to use your city centre.
“I hope the public out there in Aberdeen and the wider north-east take the opportunity that the city centre is presenting here.”
