Barcelona, October 2018 - The Shopping Night Barcelona, Paseo de Gracia's landmark event, returns bigger than ever for its ninth edition on Thursday, November the 22nd, with the aim of rekindling the festive spirit so as to engage the general public, boost sales and help the event become the signal for the beginning of the Christmas campaign.
