Manchester is far too busy today
December 26, 2015 10:16am CST
I took a quick trip into Manchester city centre as usual today, but could not believe how busy it was. Today is definitely far busier than any of the shopping days running up towards Christmas were. I knew that Boxing Day was traditionally the start of the sales, but certainly did not expect so many people to venture out today. After alighting the Metrolink tram at Exchange Square I cro9ssed the road and entered the Arndale centre. The street outside was busy enough, but inside it was difficult to even walk due to the vast hoards of people wandering aimlessly around. Surprisingly Greggs bakery was not too busy, so I simply bought a coffee and headed back to the Metrolink station and returned home. No doubt I will be stupid enough to make the same mistake again next year.

If you don't have to shop on the day after Christmas it is better to stay home and enjoy the peace and quiet. I had to go return something today but other than this I would never of gone shopping. There is a small market by the house and no need to go to the big super store here.
