Boxing Day Sales 2015: Opening Hours And All The Best Deals
Are you ready for this year's Boxing day sales? We've rounded up the best deals and discounts for Boxing day 2015 and January 2016...
What is Boxing day?
In case you've been living under a rock or you're just too embarrassed to ask after all these years why the 26th of December is called 'Boxing day', it's a holiday traditionally celebrated the day after Christmas Day when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts, known as a 'Christmas box', from their bosses or employers, because these working class people would usually be working on Christmas Day.
But more recently Boxing day has become a day for sales shopping as retailers knock prices across their stock leftover from the Christmas gift-buying period.
When do the shops open?
Traditionally, the Boxing Day sales have been a strictly 26th December affair - with retailers closing early on Christmas Eve to prepare for the clear out. But, in recent years it has become more of a week-long event, with many stores kicking off their sales in mid-December - with a few bigger surprises up their sleeves on the 26th.
Amazon is your safest bet for picking up a Boxing Day sales bargain and the big deals will start going live at 4pm on Christmas day, but the online retail giant will kick off some discounts even earlier, running them until 31st December.
Currys PC World will offer their Boxing Day deals from 7pm on Christmas Eve, with reductions on all of your favourite electronic items and appliances.
Next will welcome shoppers at 6am on the 26th December with at least 50% off of EVERYTHING!
