What is open Boxing Day?

What will be open on Boxing day. It will be our first day in Adelaide, and would like to know what we can expect to be open.

Is ait a normal shopping day? Will shops be open boxing day 26 December?

Am thinking of Rundal mall or Westfield shopping centres. Visitor information center?

Anything that will be closed that we should be aware of?

Hello,

Boxing Day in the major cities of Australia is well known for the Boxing Day Sales, so shopping is a frenzied activity in any of the known and designated shopping areas.

You'll certainly have no shortage of retail places open. If you Google 'Boxing Day Sales Adelaide' you'll get a fair idea of recent years activities.

Edit Timeout -

I was meaning to add, that shopping on this day can be quite overwhelming for some, and many locals often avoid going into the shopping areas for that reason. However, if you don't mind the hustle and bustle and after some bargains, it may just be for you.

I went with family once on boxing day...never ever again...anyone would think the shops had been closed for six months...there were no car parks at all at elizabeth mall, no seats to eat in the food hall and crowds with queues a mile long in the supermarket. Boxing day is a friday for 2014 so that means the shops will be open until 9pm in the city? Someone may correct me on that, as it is technically a holiday. So a friday afternoon and the evening may be a little quieter.

Not all restaurants will be open. Many close over the Christmas period.
