HIGH streets will buzz with shoppers again after Christmas and Boxing Day closures.
Monday December 27 is a bank holiday, which means some shops may have different hours.
Most shops were closed on Christmas Day as traditionally shopping’s off the cards on December 25.
Some shops stayed closed on Boxing Day too this year to give workers a much deserved day off over the festive season.
Home Bargains, Poundland and toy shop The Entertainer are among the high street names who didn’t open their doors.
Even supermarkets like Morrisons and Iceland decided to close their doors for Boxing Day, which was on a Sunday this year.
Here’s what you can expect after Christmas when it comes to shop opening times.
Remember hours can vary between stores and be different to usual over Christmas, so check ahead to save a wasted journey.
