Full list of stores not taking part in Boxing Day sales this week

FILE PICTURE - Christmas shoppers in London - More than 23million Brits will be completely and utterly exhausted by the time Christmas arrives, according to research. See SWNS story SWBRtired. A study found 35 per cent of adults admit they are worn out by 25th December, citing the month as the most tiring of the year. Almost a quarter blamed being knackered on the amount of socialising they try to squeeze in during December, while others put it down to the amount of shopping, planning and entertaining they have to do. More than four in 10 also get run down working extra hours in December, while nearly 35 per cent said the planning involved took a toll on their energy levels. And 51 per cent of adults admitted they’d much rather a nice quiet festive season, as it would leave them feeling healthier, fitter and less fatigued. Bounce Back Drinks polled 2,000 UK adults on why they are left feeling worn out, to launch its post-social replenishment drink.

BOXING Day is nearly upon us with customers set to be offered discounts on thousands of products.

The mega sales can be a huge money-saving event for shoppers, but some retailers choose not to take part.

We’ve listed the stores not taking part in Boxing Day sales this week

The retailers that don’t introduce specific sales usually have low prices throughout the year anyway.

For example, Home Bargains, well the clue is in the name, offers discounts all year round.

That means when it comes to sales like Black Friday or Boxing Day, they don’t actively take part.

Discount stores like Primark will also not be participating in the sales.

We’ve rounded up all of the stores that will not be taking part in the annual mega sale, as well as some of the ones that are.

Home Bargains

Home Bargains tends not to take part in these and instead offers its customers low prices all year round.

It hasn’t participated in Black Friday or Cyber Monday in the past either.

The retailer has instead offered cheap Christmas ranges this year as well as lots of other items like kitchen appliances and furniture.

TK Maxx

TK Maxx is known for selling designer goods at discounted rates.

It hasn’t taken part in the annual Boxing Day sales for the past two years.

A spokesperson told HOAR: “Unlike traditional retailers, we generally don’t do promotions, sales or other gimmicks, just exciting merchandise at amazing prices every single day.”


Poundland did not take part in Black Friday sales this year and does not have any information on Boxing Day sales on its website.

Presumably, the retailer opts not to take part because its prices are already so low.

We have contacted Poundland to confirm and will update this story when we hear back.


Primark does not hold major sales like Boxing Day events either, due to prices being low anyway and this year is no different.

A spokesperson told HOAR: “Primark offers the best value prices on all our ranges all year round.

“While we don’t host traditional store-wide Boxing Day Sales, we will be open on Boxing Day and may offer some seasonal markdowns across our festive ranges.”

Who IS taking part in the sales?

The good news is that if you’re out shopping on Monday, there will be places you can go that offer the sales.

But, not all stores will be open on Boxing Day this year so instead some are taking part in January sales instead.

Here’s a list of the retailers that will be offering sales from Boxing Day and the dates they start:

  • Ikea – Winter sale is on now until January 8
  • Next – End of season sale begins on December 27
  • B&Q – Clearance sale is on now
  • B&M – January sale begins on Boxing Day
  • JD Sports – Online Boxing Day sale begins on December 25 and in store from December 26
  • New Look – Boxing Day sales begin on December 26 both online and in store
  • Amazon – Boxing Day Sales are live between December 26 and 31
