Boxing Day sales

5:27 pm on 26 December 2010

Major retailers hope their Boxing Day sales were enough to entice shoppers to their stores after a difficult year.

The Retailers Association says stores are keen to get as many people shopping post-Christmas as they did in the lead-up to the weekend.

The association says this year has been difficult for retailers, as customers have been more cautious with their spending.

While December is the busiest month for most shops, the association says it will be fairly modest this year by normal standards.
