Welcome to one of the biggest shopping days of the year! Boxing Day is upon us and arrive on December 26th and sales usually continue throughout the week. The biggest deals will be at major superstores such as Future Shop, Winners, Sears, and Best Buy. Robson street will be full of discount sales and deals and the street will be packed with locals and tourists.

Proceed with caution and watch out for the massive crowds, as you just might be run down. People are crazy at this time of year so the best thing you can do is to go really early in the morning, or really late in the evening.

In the old days Boxing Day used to be about spending more time with the family after the Christmas dinner the day before. It was about just hanging out with the family and relaxing throughout the day and before New Years celebrations arrive.
