A while back I read something online (or maybe it was in a magazine…) about holding off until Christmas Eve to get your turkey or other joints of meat for your Christmas day lunch. It went on to say that you could get everything you needed from meat to veg at a super discounted price just before closing time at the shops.
Given how hit and miss it normally is at my local supermarkets I wasn’t sure if I would bother this year. I mean, I haven’t any other year so why start a new tradition that will only set me up for possible disappointment. Plus it’s extra effort on a day you’d normally want to kick back and relax.
I wasn’t up to too much this evening so I did some research on which supermarkets close at what times and I worked out that I could stop by Waitrose, Asda and Tesco before the final doors shut at 7pm.
