First time for Boxing Day trading

BUNDABERG shopaholics will receive a late Christmas present this year when Sugarland Shoppingtown, Target and Hinkler Central open for the first time for Boxing Day trading.

The area was recently given approval for Boxing Day trading by the Department of Industrial Relations and shoppers and shop owners are both excited.

Wallace Bishop manager Kim Cooper thinks December 26 will be a busy day for the store.

“We will have a really big sale on and people are quite excited,” she said.

Sugarland centre manager Kristina Carlsson said most stores were quick to snap up the opportunity.

“Most of the shop owners have been very favourable towards the Boxing Day trade,” she said.

“Christmas sales have been great and people are getting their shopping done quite early this year.”
