    See what looks good, then return it if you don't like it!
    I'm to tight, lazy and indecisive to do that.

    Completely depends. People say 'oh lots of places will be open.' I work in a shop in a busy shopping town and last year we were one of the very very very few shops open. M&S (biggest department store in the whole of our shopping town) was closed, as was the entire inside of the shopping centre.

    Fair enough, I just had a browse on some sites - and found it impossible to pick something without wanting to actually see it.



    And so by the sounds of it, a lot of places are starting the sales on Monday. If I gave Sunday a miss and went shopping on Monday instead - would I miss out on much?

    I fear you guys might be disappointed by the boxing day sales, something tells me the reductions won't be that much of a difference because of the credit crunch.

    I work in White Stuff and we're open on Boxing Day


    (not that that fact is much use to many people on here, since we mostly cater for middle aged people )

    Haha, lots of people haven't, don't worry. It's quite a lot like Fat Face, but for the middle aged.

    Really? Interesting theory Why do you think that? Last two winters ('08 and '09) have been during the recession and have still held excellent sales.

    I agree, but I don't think that is because of the credit crunch.

    I think it has more to do with the fact that a lot of consumers are deluded by the term 'sale', so shops reduce the prices of their items by very little because they know consumers will still buy them.

    They just put red stickers on items and dump them in bargain bins to make them look cheap, when in fact they are not.

    Weird that it falls on a sunday... and a sunday with a tube strike. Sure loads of shoppers will still go out though, most high street stores, all department stores I imagine

    Most if not all supermarkets. Not going shopping though.. it's sunday D:
