Boxing Day Sales in Auckland 2020

Auckland is not called the "City of Sales" for nothing

Last updated:

Many stores offer fantastic deals on Boxing Day – but spend some time online doing your research and beware of traders that artificially inflate prices before the sales to fool you into thinking you are getting a good deal. You can then head out to the sales forewarned and forearmed and may find a “true” bargain.

Auckland is one of the busiest centres for shopping in New Zealand, and the CBD has much to offer if you are heading to the sales. If you want to venture further afield or you live in the suburbs of Auckland, there are malls to suit all requirements. In addition to the places to shop on Boxing Day, we have provided helpful information and tips to make your life easier as you head out to the sales in Auckland.

Take a stroll down Queen Street, and be sure to check out Smith and Caugheys’ Christmas windows, before you pop inside for some respite from the heat to find some bargains in the homeware, jewellery and fashion departments.

You will also find a plethora of other stores along Queen Street, from individual boutiques and independent retailers to the better-known shops like Whitcoulls and Farmers. If you want electrical goods, then you have Noel Leeming and JB Hi-Fi on Queen Street.

The independent boutiques and designer stores like Decjuba, Parlour and Louis Vuitton’s flagship store, may have varying opening hours, so it would pay to give them a call to avoid disappointment.

Tips for surviving Boxing Day sales in Auckland

    • Leave home early. This has a two-fold advantage, you can avoid the larger crowds, and you will hopefully pick up the best bargains.
    • Travelling around the CBD by bus is easy. If you want to venture further afield, then the train is a good option. Make sure you check the timetables online, as they usually adopt a weekend schedule.
    • Consider how you will pay. If you’re using your credit card to make a large purchase, make sure you can still pay off the purchase by the due date. What can seem like a way to make a much-wanted purchase, can become a financial burden. You could consider taking out a low rate credit card or a card with a 0% interest promotion.
    • Dress for shopping. A comfortable pair of shoes can make your day far more pleasurable.
    • It pays to plan. Huge sales can be a bit mind-boggling. With stock at such low prices, you can become sidetracked and forget your carefully planned list! Try to avoid just wandering, as you will waste a lot of precious time and become tired.
    • If you are shopping with others and have similar items on your wishlist, stick together. If not, arrange to meet later for a well-earned coffee or glass of chilled wine at one of the many cafes and bars in Auckland.
    • Avoid impulse buys. Make sure you only buy items you know you are going to wear/use. That must-have Karen Walker dress may have been a steal at $100, but if you are never going to wear it, then it is $100 down the drain.
    • Budget. Decide how much money you want to spend and stick to it.

If you can’t face the sales or are in no hurry to buy, it may well pay you to wait, as retailers may further reduce items at the end of January or beginning of February.
