Article Overview

Even with Boxing Day evolving into a weekly phenomenon, December 26th was as strong as ever in 2012, especially. In fact, an overwhelming majority of 62% of Canadians had planned to shop during Boxing Day, according to data obtained by the Bank of Montreal.

PromotionalCode.ca’s very own Marc-Andre was even quoted saying: “I think on Black Friday and Cyber Monday people focus more on presents for others and during Boxing Week they shop for themselves, reward themselves a little bit […] Boxing Week is pretty much leftover stock for the year that stores are trying to get rid of, so I don’t think they necessarily compete with each other”.

In addition, surveyed consumers who answered they would be shopping for others outnumbered those who planned to shop for themselves — an interesting fact considering Boxing Day directly follows Christmas.
