But for some ‘lucky last’ in the nation’s capital, this was in fact a good decision.
As confirmed by staff of the shopping centres visited by Loop PNG, their busiest days were Friday and Saturday.
Sunday was not as hectic.
Shopping centres were not packed, streets were clear, making it a perfect day to shop.
But this did not mean there was nothing good to buy.
“We are prepared. We made sure to fully stock up so all our customers are fully satisfied,” said Peter Lee, Snr operations, Vision City.
Some shops will still be open today (December 25) but for a shorter period.
RH Hypermart Gordon will be open until 3pm. Vision City will close at 5pm.
