It might seem that after Christmas on December 25, the holiday sales are over. Well, that’s not even close to being true! The savings continue with Boxing Day sales on December 26, and Borderlinx is your ticket to shopping the best deals.
What is Boxing Day?
The holiday is largely celebrated in the United Kingdom. Its origins are debated, but a popular belief is that it comes from a tradition of the wealthy gifting boxes filled with goods to their servants as a token of appreciation for their work on Christmas Day.
Today, the holiday has transformed into buying bonanza. Millions of shoppers in the U.K. flood stores to take advantage of discounts that can reach above 50% off fashion, luxury brands, tech, home appliances and more.
Where to Shop Boxing Day Sales for International Shoppers
As with many retail holidays, stores like to offer deals a few days before the event, so definitely keep an eye out for early bird discounts. Take a look at our directory for a list of online retailers worth visiting, and bookmark the following retailers for surefire deals.
Harrods goes above and beyond when it comes to in-store Christmas decorations: live reindeer, performances, bright lights, you name it. While you won’t quite get the same experience online, the sales will be just as good. You’ll find discounts on men and women’s fashion, kitchenware, furniture, home goods and more.
The popular department store will start its online Clearance sale December 24 as it makes way for new merchandise in 2017. Thousands of items are expected to go on sale.
Argos is another shopper-favored destination on Boxing Day. Check out the retailer’s dedicated “Price Drop” page for featured sales. Last year, standout deals included price cuts on products from Dyson, Nescafe, ASUS, LG and Braun just to name a few.
This well-known drugstore store is the go-to for the top brands in makeup, grooming, baby, pharmaceutical & health, fragrances and toys — and you can bet most of it will be on sale! If you haven’t signed up for their fabulous rewards program, now is a good time to do it.
Lastly, don’t forget about European retailers, especially those in Germany. Although Boxing Day sales aren’t as huge as they are in the U.K., stores still offer discounts in the spirit of the holiday.
