    With a record amount of people buying online for the sales on Christmas Day and also most likely to be people queuing outside of shops tomorrow in the early hours, will any of you be hitting the sales? Or will you be still busy celebrating Christmas with family and friends?

    70/30 on hitting the sales but I really don't need anything but I'll just go for the bargains and atmosphere I guess.

    I'm always in london at Christmas and there's no better place to shop than in london!

    I'm going to be sitting at home crying like I did today about the fact that the thing I really wanted to get is sold out

    Hopefully doing some online shopping. Although I've found Mid Jan is when the prices drop even lower granted there is still some stock left.

    This tbh.

    Never went shopping on Boxing Day and don't intend to, would be far too busy and stressful for me.

    I'm actually scared to venture out tomorrow, clothing shops are an absolute nightmare on days like that.

    Last year I got to witness what was going by the Selfridges Boxing Day is one of the days when people unleash an animal inside them :laugh: Just avoid popular stores and you should be safe That's why I'm only going to 1 store

    I can remember working in retail and having to work on Boxing Day and it being absolute chaos with people looking to buy bargains and at the same time return unwanted Christmas Presents. Although I imagine Black Friday is worse than anything now with it unleashing the animal in customers.

    Tbh most shops nowadays set up for sale on the night of the 23rd as nobody works late on Christmas Eve. The shops are open on Christmas Eve and all the good sale stock pretty much flies out then. Wait a few weeks and further reductions appear and that's when you can really snag a bargain
