The shopping trend in Metro Vancouver has quite recently taken a turn as most shoppers are changing their shopping taste. Boxing Day shopping in Metro Vancouver is moving at a rapid pace and this time around electronics are not taking the spot light.
Malls all over the province were crowded with shoppers waiting in line to do shopping and even the weather could not deter people from moving store to store during the holiday.
Boxing Day shopping at the McArthurGlen mall was quite busy and shoppers were treated with great discount offers.
During the past few years, clothing sales have risen, while electronic sales have dropped this December.
Another trend which declined on Boxing Day was online shopping. Shoppers were more willing to do store shopping and feel the stuffs they were buying and also get to feel the joy of shopping for clothes in a store.
Online shopping was a massive hit on Black Friday and Cyber Monday as it was a working day but fortunately Boxing Day is always a holiday and one of the favorite shopping day for Canadians.
And for many malls, they are expecting to see an increased number of shoppers this year.
David Ian Gray, a retail expert explained that the reason for the drop in electronic sales is as a result of the increase in online shopping. This is because unlike clothes, shopping online for electronics is much easier are shoppers know the exact brand that they want. But with clothes, one has to feel the fabric and try them one before making a choice.
