– Tim Walley, general manager of the Bullring shopping centre
Today we expect over 200,000 customers to flock to Bullring all eager to pick up some bargains. Three of the centre's biggest retailers, Selfridges, Debenhams and Next have all launched their iconic sales today.
Many of the centre's retailers are now offering huge discounts including up to 50% off at A|X Armani Exchange and Reiss.
There was a new record for online shopping set yesterday, analysts claimed. High streets retailers said they enjoyed record figures as the average footfall across the UK rose by 21.6% compared to last year.
