Most shoppers 'wait until 27th' to hit sales

A shopping centre director in Bristol said he expected more visitors tomorrow rather than today.

Kevin Duffy said around 180,000 people are expected to visit Cabot Circus over the next two days, with an estimated 100,000 of those waiting an extra day to pick up deals.

I think some people are still coming back from holidays or time spent visiting family today, so we are expecting slightly more people through the doors tomorrow.

That seems to be the way things happen now, people are happy to wait until December 27.

– Kevin Duffy, Cabot Circus director
