The Next sale is one of the most popular in the UK. Actual bargains to be had, with up to 50% off many items, right across the store. When I was a bit younger I used the Next sale and others like it to stock up on clothes for the year ahead. Smart casual work trousers – check. Decent shirts, also check. Clothes for my daughter…. You guessed it, check!
Many customers queue through the night to ensure they get the very best deals and discounts on clothing, shoes and accessories. I know this because I was once one of these people. Getting a great deal on your clothing in a Boxing Day or January Sale is a great way to reduce your costs. If your budget for clothing and ensure you don’t go into debt, then savvy shoppers save hundreds at the Next sale.
