It’s that time of the year again when we all start to think about Christmas shopping. However, this year will be a little different due to disruptive times by major stores. Through their spokesperson, the Home Bargains have announced a shift in their open days over the Christmas and New Year period which will extend to facilitate their employees having a good time with their friends and relatives. 

On Sunday, December 25th, and Monday, December 26th, all of the stores will be closed, and won’t reopen until December 27th.  So, if you want to get some games and toys for your family or some online casino themed gifts for your gambling friends for a great Christmas night, you can consider reaching the store before 5 pm, Christmas Eve.

Other stores expected to follow the new trend are Iceland which will be closed on Boxing Day, and Aldi, the entertainer, and Sainsbury’s, Poundland which did so last.
