Retailers crack in last week before Christmas as Tesco, Mothercare and House of Fraser announce huge half price sales

Boxing Day is still a week away, but it seems the sales have already started all across the high street.

The likes of Habitat, Mothercare and House of Fraser have all launched mass sales, with 50% off across the board at Habitat, 50% off at House of Fraser and up to 50% off Christmas clothing, toys and gifts at Mothercare,


Meanwhile at Tesco, their sale was originally meant to begin on Boxing Day, as is tradition, but according to their website, has now been moved forward to the 22nd.

Retail analyst Natalie Berg was first to spot the trend, and puts all the huge discounts down to December’s slow start, which included a big Black Friday hangover and those famous weather conditions.

Penny Shaw, Head of Merchandising for Habitat, said: “We launched the Habitat Winter Sale on 19 December so that our online customers can get delivery of their homeware bargains before Christmas and enjoy them over the whole of the festive season. We had a great start to our sale yesterday with dinnerware, chairs and bedding -for those welcome but unexpected guests – selling particularly well.”

Apparently “the Habitat Winter Sale has always started pre-Christmas – both online and in our stores. Homewares sell well pre-Christmas and people tend to buy bigger ticket items such as sofas and furniture from Boxing Day onwards as they have more time available to consider these purchases at home.”

We’ve listed out some of the top discounts in the early sales, which includes homewares, toys and clothing.
