The Next Boxing Day sale has become one of the most popular days for shoppers in the Christmas calendar – so when will stores be open in Suffolk and north Essex?
Boxing Day is traditionally one of the UK's busiest shopping days - but this year, in the wake of Black Friday, many stores have already launched their sales ahead of the big day.
The Next sale has always been a huge event for bargain-hunters hoping to pick up some post-Christmas discounts.
The following Next stores will be open from 6am to 6pm for the Boxing Day sale.
