Boxing Day. There are two extremes: More TV, more overeating and even more relaxing. Or early awakening and out to hunt for a bargain.

Lucky for me, John Lewis are not open on Boxing Day. But wow, when our clearance started, customers sprawled into every square inch of the store in search for a bargain. News has it that within the first hour of Sunday a record 16,000 eager beavers came to Brent Cross Shopping Centre.

Now, you are probably wondering the reason for this post. First of all I think alongside many partners, I thank John Lewis for staying closed for one extra day. But second of all, I’m confused. Confused by those customers who expect short queues and stock in perfect size order. One customer yelled: “There about 100 people in all the queues to pay!” I think to myself, it’s the first day of clearance.

Now I’ve never actually ventured out shopping on Boxing Day. I’m terrified of getting trampled on. Perhaps after working in retail for six years I’ve gone off shopping. For me, sales equal stress. Though, I’ve got to admit, I do envy those who find real bargains: Was £150, now £10!
