Home Bargains to close on Boxing Day to let staff “truly enjoy the break with their loved ones”

A high street discount store has announced that it will be closed this Boxing Day to allow its staff the day off.

Home Bargains, which has 500 stores and employs 23,000 staff across the country, will not open its doors to the public on December 26th.

Locally Home Bargains has two stores – one in Gwersyllt and the other in the town centre.

Tom Morris, founder and managing director of Home Bargains, said: “Christmas is a significant period in the retail calendar, and with staff across the business spending months building up to the occasion every year, we wanted to give them an opportunity to relax and truly enjoy the break with their loved ones.

“Home Bargains is a family-run business and we know the importance of being with loved ones at Christmas time.

“We also appreciate that our staff work tirelessly to keep over 500 of our stores running like clockwork, so giving everyone Boxing Day off is our way of saying thank you for their hard work and commitment.

“We look forward to welcoming shoppers back through our doors on Thursday 27 December.”

It joins the likes of other big high street names such as Aldi.

There have been growing calls in recent years for shops to rethink their opening hours over the festive period and on Sundays.

However, despite still being a popular day for shoppers to spend their Christmas vouchers / money and return items, there has been a shift to online pre-Christmas sale in recent years.
