Shops open up for Boxing Day bargains
Last updated at 10:36, Saturday, 24 December 2011
WITH Christmas not even out of the way, many people’s thoughts have already turned to bagging a bargain.
Retailers may close their doors this evening, but will not get much rest over the festive season.
Many shops will open up again on Boxing Day to welcome bargain hunters to the sales.
With money tighter than ever for some families, businesses are hoping for a bumper sales period.
Next, in Hindpool Road, has traditionally been the first to open for the sales, and will open at 6am on Boxing Day this year.
Shoppers are expected to flock to the store with all sale items half price or less.
Debenhams in Portland Walk is holding its “biggest sale ever,” which starts at 7am.
Items on sale include £45 off a Jasper Conran handbag, a half price YSL Belle D’Opium perfume and 70 per cent off all Christmas decorations.
Jeff Dandy, owner of Dandy’s Fine Beds and Furniture in Duke Street, said the store is holding a “traditional” sale which starts on 10am on Tuesday.
He said: “We like to say it is a sale that is like sales used to be.
“We have really good reductions on our clearance items. We also have discounts, which are done through our manufacturers, where we offer extra discounts when someone spends a particular amount.
“We are hoping for a good sale and that everybody is in the buying mood for the new year.”
Stars of the sale include an electric adjustable bed which is only £199 (a reduction of over a £1,000) and a two seater sofa with chair and footstool for only £299.
The sale at Stollers furniture store, in Walney Road, began at the beginning of December and will continue into January.
