Christmas Day shoppers hope to bag a bargain

No primary category set

Christmas Day is set to be one of the busiest shopping days of the year, according to new research by Kelkoo. Bargain hunters are likely to hit the sales earlier than usual this year as VAT is set to increase to 17.5% on January 1st. High street shoppers will be out in force on Boxing Day, but online shoppers should be hammering their credit cards even earlier: Kelkoo are predicting 8pm on 25th will be the most popular time for an internet shopping spree.

Lots of eBay sellers – especially those who work on their own – shut up shop between Christmas and New Year. Royal Mail won’t be collecting until 29th, so orders won’t go anywhere – but will that matter to a rabid bargain hunter?

Will you be closing up shop, or trading through as normal? And what about buying: does your computer get switched off on Christmas Eve and not powered up again til New Year’s Day? Be part of our totally unscientific polls: two for the price of one this time…
