Poll: Do you back the petition to close stores on Boxing Day?
We’re asking readers for their views after a petition to ban shops from opening on Boxing Day hit more than 100,000 signatures.
The petition, which needs a further 45,000 signatures in order to be considered by Parliament, argues Boxing Day should be viewed as a “religious holiday” and a time for families to spend quality time together.
While the idea is a hit with workers fed up with having to lift the shutters so soon after Christmas, some have slammed the petition, claiming times have moved on and Boxing Day sales provide a necessary boost for businesses.
