Perth Boxing Day sales: Relaxed shoppers patiently queue in their thousands for bargains

Hordes of shoppers have patiently queued outside Perth’s top retail destinations before snapping up Boxing Day bargains, with clothing, shoes and accessories among the big drawcards.

Daniel Bradshaw, boss of trendy youth label StreetX, said customers started queuing outside the William Street store at 10pm on Sunday and a 30 metre line still snaked outside the building around 11.30am after an 8am opening.

“Hopefully we’ll clear that line by the end of the day — it’s just about getting as many kids through as possible,” Mr Bradshaw told The West Australian.

“It’s been strong … comparable with last year and probably even better for us.

“We’re used to big lines, though, so we’re not really surprised but it’s definitely great to have.

“This is the one day of the year we do an in-store sale.”

Mr Bradshaw said he expected the business would have served 800-1000 customers by day’s end, noting the mood had been relaxed.

“Everyone’s happy to wait and chill,” he said.

First-time Boxing Day sales shopper Rhys Macdonald gathered with his mates outside another Aussie youth fashion label, Oli in Northbridge, around 4am.

“It’s been long — an early wake up,” the 16-year-old said.

“There was probably 25 people in front of us.

“It’s been really good, well enjoyed. We came with chairs and we’re just relaxing.

“Wicked: I got $400 worth of stuff for $190.”
