Boxing Day 2020 sales: All the major shops that will be open this year

Christmas shopping hasn't exactly been the same this year due to social distancing and national lockdowns, but there may be some normality on Boxing Day.

For those who still want to bag a bargain on December 26, certain shops will be opening their doors – so as long as you're not in tier 4, you can shop till you drop.

The day after Christmas has always been known for being an epic date for retail therapy, with many shoppers keen to buy items at slashed prices.

Due to the unforeseen events of 2020, certain stores have decided to remain closed on Boxing Day to thank their staff for their hard work this year.

Some of the shops choosing not to open include Marks and Spencer, Aldi, Waitrose and John Lewis.

But fear not, because if you are keen to head out and spend some cash, here's the stores that will be serving you on December 26…


  • Sainsbury's accused of 'acting like Scrooge' by making staff work on Boxing Day

Savvy shoppers are known for getting up at the crack of dawn to hit the Next Boxing Day sales.

The sales start from 6am, but you're best to check your local store for exact opening times.


Despite Debenhams already announcing that their stores are closing down, they haven't said they will be shut on Boxing Day.
