Boxing Day sales in Toronto for 2018 are plentiful, with steep discounts on the very same goods people were paying full price for literally two days earlier. If you're brave enough to face the crowds and clever enough to have saved some cash, it's time to shop for Y-O-U (and any friends or relatives you haven't yet seen this holiday season.)
Here are my picks for the best Boxing Day sales in Toronto for 2018.
Serious savings are in store for those brave enough to visit Best Buy on Boxing Day. Is a 75" LG Smart TV worth a few bruised elbows?
