Boxing Day Sales - Where to Go to Get the Best Deals in Melbourne
Christmas is done and dusted, you're still digesting an overload of mince pies and novelty chocolate, but the festive season isn't over yet until you've taken your Christmas money and hit the Boxing Day Sales, right?! It's a great time to stock up on things that are usually out of the budget - if you dare to brave the crowds!
One plan of attack can be to circumnavigate one shopping centre and hit up only the stores you need. Of course, browsing is still fun but it's not as relaxing as it is without the hungry shoppers alongside you desperate for a new vacuum cleaner! Park near the exits and prepare your map. We're going in...
Highpoint is open from 7am to 11pm and is home to 500 specialty fashion, homewares and lifestyle stores. You're sure to pick up a bargain from Myer, David Jones, Topshop, Zara Home, Seed, Bed Bath N Table, KMart, Target, Bardot, Metalicus and more.
Harris Scarfe has started their Boxing Day sale prices early and will run until December 24. Get 40- 60% off all homewares and manchester, 30-40% off all clothing, footwear and underwear, and 15-40% off electrical.
The biggest shopping centre in the Southern Hemisphere is sure to land you anything you could want at a Boxing Day price you can afford! Shop high end or bargain basement all in one place. Pick up some Laduree macarons for a bit of Paris festive flair to keep your stamina up while trying on all those frocks in the Fashion Capital. Stock up on gourmet treats, shoes, bags, books, toys, homewares and more. Gap would be a great place to shop as their entire store is already heavily on sale.
Chadstone is open 7am - 11pm Boxing Day.
Boxing Day at David Jones is a genius move - several levels of everything from toys to totes means you don't have to traipse around an entire shopping centre through the mass of people to get what you want!
All DJs stores across Melbourne will be offering significant discounts, hit up Eastland, Bourke St Mall, Chadstone, Doncaster, Highpoint, Malvern Central, Glen Waverley and Southland.
The Good Guys
For a wide range of home appliances, TVs, laptops, kitchenware and more, head to The Good Guys (or skip the crowds and shop the sales online!), where you can get a great deal on big ticket items.
Another great option for managing stress and people levels on Boxing Day is to stick to the Myer department store - you can get just about anything there! Their biggest stocktake sale of the year features everytying from men’s and women’s apparel, homewares and appliances to tech, toys and beauty.
Myer has also been known to hand out extra discounts to Boxing Day shoppers (one year, the first 500 people to arrive were given special tickets with once-in-a-lifetime bargain specials), so it's worth a visit!
Northland Shopping Centre
Hit up the northern suburbs for your post-Christmas shop, where you will find more than 300 stores, a restaurant area and Hoyts Cinema at Northland Shopping Centre open from 8am - 6pm December 26. There's a great play space outside JB Hi Fi for kids, too.
120,000 square metres of retail space await at Westfield Doncaster, open 8am - 7pm on Boxing Day. Go nuts in stores like Novo, Adidas, Cotton On, Mimco, Decjuba, The Universal Store, Georg Jensen, Swarovski, Oroton, Adairs, Big W, Bed Bath N Table, Nespresso, Sheridan, and more.
