Rumour on the street has it that this year’s Boxing Day sales will be the most reduced to date. As the retail sector continues to struggle under the weight of financial reform and the burgeoning online market, prices are promised to plummet.
We feel that this still doesn’t justify the unruly lines, madness and blatant competitiveness that seem to unravel even the most polished perfectionist come Boxing Day.
So we have a little alternative. Instead of bulldozing through hordes of crazed consumerists at the bigger department stores, why not calmly meander down to one of the many lovely independent retailers that are also offering welcome bargains today.
If quality at unreasonable prices is what you’re after (without the coathanger snatching), take a peek below.
It is definitely not too late for swimwear, especially when it is so beautiful and this drastically reduced. We have our eye on a few of the flirty frilly numbers, and pretty much anything in a bold print.
