Boxing Day Preparation
Boxing day: one of the busiest days on the retail calendar, one of the busiest days for Retail Assist. Like most retailers across the country, we’ve been preparing for this for a while, and are looking forward to what is set to be a very profitable day for our clients.
Helpdesk Manager Anthony Collings said: “We make sure weeks before that we are running at low open incidents as it’s important that the retailers are there to sell and make money.
“That way, if there are any problems on Boxing Day, our helpdesk are available to provide support immediately.”
Following last years reports of strong sales on Boxing Day 2011 – with Selfridges reportedly taking in £1.3m in its first hour – retailers are hopeful for another busy day, which we are honoured to be a part of.
If you are looking to do some shopping yourself we recommend paying a visit to White Stuff – who are offering up to 40% off women’s, men’s and accessories online and in store, starting today – and Mint Velvet, who have 20% off selected items.
If shopping isn’t your thing then we recommend a quiet day at the cinema to end festivities on a cheery note – Nativity 2 is worth a watch.
