Braving the Boxing Day Sales. Chaos!

I don’t know why I did it. There were a lot of people in the city that day. The day’s news informed me that some were out there in the morning for that special bargain before the stores even opened.

The best part of the visit was an unexpected hello from a salesperson I used to chat to in another suburb, outside the crazy CBD. She was now working in the city for another store. She spotted me, made the time to chase me down, give me a hug and wish me a good day. It was lovely. Her name was Jae Won.

  1. In Germany, Boxing Day is still a public holiday with everything closed. Madness resumes only on the 27th. We weren’t anymore sensible, though. My husband wanted a shirt and a sweater exchanged but we gave up because all the car parks in walking distance of the shops were full. 🙂

      1. I’m not much of a shopper at the best of times, and lots of retailers seemed to have better discounts for online sales. My son says the shop he works in did that — but they still had an overwhelming number of bricks and mortar customers, and made far more money that way.
