Boxing Day shoppers hit stores to find bargains

Help

The Boxing Day sales are well underway, with several major shopping centres opening their doors in the early hours.

Retailers are hoping for a much needed boost to their sales - many of them are offering huge discounts in an attempt to hit their underlying profits.
