As we approach Christmas at breakneck speed, shopping centres around Brisbane will soon be overflowing with shoppers frantically buying Christmas presents and food stuff for the silly season. For many of us, I am sure, the thought of braving the manic carparks, crowded stores and long queues at the supermarket leaves us shaking in terror with nightmares of bingles, parking space rage, claustrophobia and boredom. If this is you, why not leave it all until the last minute? Yes, you read right, the last minute.

Westfield Chermside will be opening their doors and most of their stores from 9am Friday December 23rd until 5pm Saturday December 24th. Unsuprisingly, at 3am Saturday morning, there are not many people willing to get up and traipse around a shopping centre, which makes it the perfect time to do so. Apart from a few youngsters with energy drinks in hand giggling with glee at being allowed out of the house at such an hour, you will find Chermside empty from about 2-6am. As a bonus, there will even be carparks close by the myriad of entrances. You can buy all your gifts (with gift-wrapping of course), coffee, Christmas groceries and even a late night snack without having to wait in a single queue.

Even if you were one of the well-organised people who bought all their Christmas presents six months early, do it for the novelty of shopping at 3am, feeling like almost like a VIP in the near empty stores. It is, after all, a once-a-year-event.
