THOMPSON-OKANAGAN - Bargain hunters are on the prowl at malls and stores throughout the Thompson-Okanagan checking out the Boxing Day sales.
Those looking to buy the present they didn't get, unload gift cards or simply shop for the sake of shopping will be out spending on one of the biggest shopping days of the year.
Some online sellers including Amazon and Future Shop have already rolled out their Boxing Day deals.
A online survey commissioned by cash-back shopping site Ebates.ca found that about 40 per cent of Canadians plan to shop on Boxing Day.
The Retail Council of Canada has said holiday promotions are like a marathon, not a sprint, as many stores also take part in earlier Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.
