I havent personally but know people who work there...and yes its hell on earth...if you go be prepared for horrendous queues to get in and out of the car park and remember that everyone is hemmed in - unlike going to Manchester where you are at least outside and can escape down a side street to avoid the masses!

I’m more of an online shopper personally!
I think it will be ridiculously busy in an annoying way. Long queues, people literally moving through the shopping centre in single file, people getting in the way etc. It’s up to you whether you think that’s a fun day out!

Yes- if everyone stopped shopping on Boxing Day then at least retail staff might get more than one day off work
What’s so special about retail staff, exactly? Why not hospitality staff? Those who make sure websites are running and card machines are operating? Cinema and football stadium staff?

Makes me laugh when people say shop online instead, let retail staff have the day off.
Who the heck do people think does all of the work to get the sale items on line? Takes an army of supply, dot com, IT and logistics staff to fulfil your online order!
