Christmas is over – it's time to get back to the shopping

News | Published:

TOWN retailers have reported a bumper start to the post-Christmas sales – with over 230 people queuing up outside Next at 5 am yesterday.

Despite the poor weather conditions, thousands of Islanders braved the rain and headed into town to try and grab themselves a bargain.

It was announced yesterday that a record number of people visited UK retail websites on Boxing Day, but it seems residents were just as eager in St Helier as shops re-opened their doors.

Next store manager Andy McHugh said: 'There was already a couple of people queuing up outside when I got in at 4 am and by the time we opened at 5 am there were 230 people waiting to get in.'
