CHRISTMAS is over but the shopping frenzy is only just beginning – thanks to the arrival of the New Year sales.
Retailers are slashing prices on everything, from clothes to electronics, homeware to handbags – and things you’ve never known you needed.
How long do the January sales last?
The clue for the start date of the sales should be in the name but actually there isn’t a set length of time that the January sales are on for.
These days the January sales are joined together with the Boxing Day sales, with dozens of bargains already for the taking.
For example, Simply Be kicked things off on December 22 and House of Fraser began its discounts online from Christmas Day.

What retailers are offering deals?
You’d be hard pushed to find a shop or website that ISN’T offering discounts in the January sales, but these are some of the retailers to particularly look out for….
The online superstore is always one to look out for, and its annual New Year Sale is back with thousands of ‘lightning deals‘.
The offers have included everything, from top sports brands and designer togs, to high-quality watches and beauty products, with savings of as much as 70 per cent.
The Boots sale kicked off on Christmas Eve and is still running.
Boots are famous for clearing their Christmas stock out at cut-rate prices so it’s a good time to hunt for a bargain on fragrances and gift sets in particular.
Debenhams is currently in the middle of its winter sale which began before Christmas.
The store has discounts on thousands of items including cosmetics, fragrance, electricals and fashion.
Womens clothing and handbags, lingerie, shoes, beauty and menswear are all on sale for up to half price, with electricals, luggage, furniture and homeware heavily discounted too.
The Halfords BIG SALE includes bikes, helmets, trackers and the retailer has even thrown micro-scooters into the bargain.
It started on Boxing Day, and continues well into January, but you might need to move quick to grab the best deals.
From Boxing Day and throughout January, as Hamleys holds their epic ‘Super Sale’.
Shoppers can save up to 50 per cent on selected lines in store and online, with things for grown up and littles on available at bargain prices.
