SALES EXPECTED TO SOAR DURING LAST MINUTE DASH December 21st, 2013 admin Latest News Shares Comments SALES EXPECTED TO SOAR DURING LAST MINUTE DASH Thousands of shoppers will flock to Liverpool ONE this Christmas Eve in a bid to bag their last-minute gifts. In 2012 Christmas Eve recorded a 20% surge in footfall compared to the same day last year, with sales of perfume, cosmetics, jewellery, lingerie and the demand of gift wrapping set to soar. Donna Howitt, Marketing Director at Liverpool ONE said: “We’re usually inundated with last minute shoppers on Christmas Eve and trends normally predict that a large proportion of these shoppers will be men, this year seems like it will be no different.” With many retailers already offering discounts, a strong start to the post-Christmas sales is predicted. From Boxing Day Liverpool ONE will see most of its stores in sale. Those wanting to bag a bargain on the biggest sales day of the year are predicted to spend, on average, more than at any other time of the year. Donna added: “We have had a strong Christmas which started when we recorded the busiest day in our history on November 30. “With some amazing discounts from our retailers – even as low as 90% – we expect that the famous January Sales will be more popular than ever.” Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
