Retail workers have launched a petition for stores to close on Boxing Day to allow them to spend time with families.


Many retail workers in Eastbourne have signed a petition to beg for business owners to close their retail stores on Boxing Day.


December 26th is one of the busiest days for shops as they slash their prices and offer huge discounts. Some stores require staff to clock in earlier than 4AM to prepare for the madness to commence. 


Over 97,000 people have signed the viral petition urging for stores to close on Boxing Day arguing that eager shoppers can get the same deals on December 27th instead.


With stores such as Next, River Island, and Primark known for their Boxing Day sales, will this be the year they are finally relieved of their dreaded duties?
