Boxing Day Sale

6:47 pm Contributed by JW

So right after Christmas, here come the Boxing Day, so did you manage to get something on this Boxing day? In most of the Commonwealth countries, (except some of the Commonwealth countries in Asia). Boxing Day sales are just as much part of the festive season as candy canes. On December 26, shoppers line up outside stores, waiting in anticipation for the doors to open and for the 50%, 60% and 70% sales or even 80% sales to begin. The term originates in Victorian England, when the rich would box up gifts on the day after Christmas and bring them to the poor. In recent times, it has just come to mean Sale, Sale, Sale!

This year, Boxing Day came early -- at least in New York City. Sales started everywhere on the street: Gucci, Guess, D&G, Marc Jacobs, Barney's, etc. Even online retailers have been going on sale earlier than ever before.

So, does this must mean that retailers are desperate because US retail market is in the doldrums? Maybe, is too early to tell, but one thing for sure, you don't want to miss this crazy sale on this Boxing Day.
