How to get the most out of Boxing Day sales from London
- Plan ahead. The best stuff will probably be pounced on during the first few days, so make sure you plan ahead and know when the store (or stores) you're planning on visiting start their sale days. Many sales last until mid-way through January, and the last few days will often see even further price cuts (although you might be faced with slim pickings).
- Make a list. Boxing Day sales can be overwhelming. Keep yourself on track with a priority list. It can help to set yourself a budget for each item, so you don’t overspend.
- For electronics: Do your research on the best store to find the particular tech/electrical item you're after. Electrical items traditionally get their prices slashed on Boxing Day, so retailers will compete with one another. Shop around until you find the best deal.
- For fashion: Wear clothes and shoes that are comfortable to take on and off. Take a spare pair of socks or stocking for trying on shoes.
- For online shoppers: Don't forget that "Boxing Day" sales often start early through online stores – even before Christmas. Keep up to date with the sale times to avoid missing out.
