..as stores enjoy £3bn record takings from Boxing Day spree
December 27, 2013
Angry shoppers yesterday accused stores of ripping them off with bogus discounts as millions of people flocked to the Boxing Day sales.
High street stores enjoyed record takings, with more than £3billion in total thought to have gone through the tills and footfall up on last year.
But within hours, consumers vented their anger on Twitter after discovering some items were originally cheaper before the Boxing Day sales began.
