The last chance saloon for Christmas shopping

There are now just hours until stores close for Christmas.
 
Yesterday saw the busiest day on UK high streets with spending peaking at 1.3 billion. But figures suggest fewer people are heading out to shop and are buying even more over the internet.
 
Yesterday was known as ‘man dash day’ with each year it's thought over 3 million people leave our Christmas shopping to the last 12 days, especially the men.

Over the last few weeks we have experienced ‘Cyber Monday’ and ‘Black Friday’ too, where shoppers are enticed with deals on andoffline to get cheap high street deals

The Doddle CEO, Tim Robinson predicted the growth in these shopping days in the UK could see the importance of Boxing Day sales lessen. 
 

Alison Earle was on Oxford Street to see if Londoners are organised, or have left it to the eleventh hour.
