Shoppers hit the streets early in Saskatoon and Regina
Boxing Day means brisk morning business at major retailers
Shoppers got up early across Saskatoon and Regina to a mild morning — and long line-ups.
The comparatively balmy weather made getting around easier. And judging by the line-ups at the cash registers, a lot of people had the same idea.
"There was a huge lineup by 6 o'clock," said Allison Bear outside of the east-side Best Buy in Saskatoon.
"I come to pick up an HP laptop for my daughter."
At around 6:30 CST, Mohammad Islam stood just inside the Best Buy with an oversized cardboard box, waiting for his ride. He said that he decided that he needed a new TV.
"Smart, with 3-D. Big, obviously. This one is 50 inch."
