    Coping with the retail crowds on Boxing Day


    You’ve crawled out of bed, managed to shake off the Christmas evening slump and are ready to tackle the retail crowds on Boxing Day. But, did you know that the rush of the sales can, in fact, lead to some serious retail-related injuries?

    From slips, trips and falls, to crushed and bodies and fellow-shopper violence, we take a look at how to survive the frenzy of the retail crowds on Boxing Day.

    Dodge the retail crowds on Boxing Day

    So, you want to see what the sales have to offer, but that doesn’t mean that you need to be at the heart of the hustle and bustle.

    Stay away from large crowds who are seemingly fighting it out for the deals. It might seem a bit far-fetched, but ‘mob-mentality’ can kick in, and you may find yourself subject to an altercation, or simply slip and fall due to traffic volume. Don’t follow the crowd. That discount tag isn’t worth it.

    Dress for the job in hand

    It’s the day after Christmas, and you may want to show off your brand new Kurt Geigers, but this isn’t the time or the place for traipsing on glossed floors and through winter weather in killer heels.

    Minimise the risk of injury by dressing to be part of the retail crowds on Boxing Day. Flats and comfy clothes should do the trick.

    Give it a miss

    Just because the sale starts on Boxing Day doesn’t mean that it’s a case of ‘miss it, miss out’. Do you really need to travel on icy roads, risking road-related accidents or pavement slips and falls?

    What’s more, many of the Boxing Day sales now go live online on Christmas Day, and even Christmas Eve in some cases. Pop on your slipper socks, stick Home Alone on the TV and enjoy the sales from the comfort of your own home.
