What products does Myer sell and what is typically on sale?
Myer is your one-stop-shop stocking everything from men’s and women’s apparel, homewares and appliances to tech, toys and beauty. As the Boxing Day sales are the chain’s biggest stocktake sale of the year, you can expect for everything on the floor to be part of the sale.
You will find heavy discounts on clothing, perfume, electrical appliances and most especially on leftover Christmas themed stock. For the forward planners out there, this is the best time to buy your Christmas goods for next year!
What sort of discounts does Myer have?
In the lead up to Christmas last year, Myer was offering 40% off womenswear and lingerie, 25% off childrenswear, 40% off dinner sets and 35% off luggage. Boxing Day sales saw the retail giant slash up to 70% off a range of products storewide including men’s and women’s apparel, youth apparel, intimate apparel, children’s wear, footwear and accessories and homewares.
In addition to that, the first 500 people to arrive at each store on Boxing Day were greeted with Gold Shopping Tickets that had once in a lifetime bargains. Not only that, Myer had special one-day offers to celebrate the first day of the month long sale.
This year, Myer is expected to have another record year with similar savings for customers both online and in-store.
Will it include designer names?
