Well, let me tell you a story. The day after Christmas, the 26th, all of the stores turn into zoos, with people trampling each other, I do not participate in this. There are usually crazy bargains on this day, hence the trampling.:mrgreen:
Boxing Day, as far as I know, in the U.S., is when retailers offer outrageous discounts on top of already discounted items and regular merchandise. I believe it's usually for employees of the store, and their relatives. However, you commonly see the "employee discount" type sale at a lot of retailers.
I remember working parttime at Polo, Ralph Lauren. We would get something like 75% off anything on one day, just before the holidays. It ruled!
