For years now, Boxing Day has been the best day for people all across the UK flock to the shops to find incredible bargains from all their favourite high street retailers.
After COVID-19 restrictions last year, and uncertainty this year, many retailers are opting to close their stores on the big day.

In previous years, Next has opened their doors as early as 06:00, and seen people lined up outside them even earlier, so this will not cause a huge shift in the day.
