The Harrods Sale is on

London's most famous upscale store, Harrods, is traditionally the focal point of shopping on Boxing Day - 26 December. For locals as well as tourists this Knightsbridge store offers steep discounts to attract shoppers after Christmas. Perfumes are sold at 50% off regular prices and women's designer clothing can be purchased for as much as $3,000 less than their original prices - imagine what the original prices were!

The best discounts are on unsold Christmas gifts. You can get leftovers for 50% to 80% off original prices. Since stocks are limited there is a mad rush to get inside the store in the morning of December 26. However, the sale lasts for a week so if you are merely a browser planning to buy only a souvenir bag or some Harrods foodstuff, you can avoid the rush and go to the store a couple of days after the sale starts.
