Valla couple hits Boxing Day sales

FOR Paul and Dianne Unterrheiner, Boxing Day shopping is an annual event.

Before Christmas the Valla couple shop around to get an idea of the prices and know what they are targeting.

“When you see the difference in the prices, it really makes it worthwhile to shop around,” Mr Unterrheiner said.

“With the way things are financially, this is the best way to get what we want.”

Bargains were there for the spontaneous shoppers as well.

Visiting from Sydney, Gayle Butt said towels and swimmers had caught her eye in Target.

Long queues in the department store did not deter people, who were content to wait more than 15 minutes to pay for their goodies.

Coffs teenager Nikala Pennant said she was out every year making the most of the clothes sales.

“There are so many bargains – I’ve picked up heaps, all for less than half price,” Ms Pennant said.

At Dymocks, Natalie Cowling said people were arriving before 9am, knocking on the windows while she was vacuuming.
