Boxing Day is important for major shopping centre based newsagents

Yesterday in many major shopping centres in Australia it was a battle between retailers large and small for shopper attention and money at the Boxing Day sales kicked off.

Shoppers were out for a bargain and if you did not have bargains on the lease line people quickly passed you by.

We had stock sourced specifically for the opportunity as well as products we are quitting for 2017. Boxed cards were the hero in one store with $4,000 worth sold for terrific GP in the day.

Given how serious shoppers move between centres and how the Boxing Day Sale in Melbourne is a season, we have gone out today with a new offer.

I’m grateful for the opportunity of this end of year clear out.
