What’s Open and Closed on Boxing Day in Brampton

Published December 25, 2020 at 7:41 pm

This year, due to COVID-19, the Boxing Day shopping experience won’t exactly be what everyone is used to, but there will still be ways to enjoy it in Brampton.

Fun fact: It is called “Boxing Day” because – starting in medieval Britain – servants had a day off and would receive a gift box on this day.

This year, Boxing Day falls on Saturday, Dec. 26, 2020. Because it falls on a weekend, some businesses and offices will treat Monday, Dec. 28 as a statutory holiday (so if you plan on going out on Dec. 28, call ahead to be sure your destination is open).

So, without further ado, here is what’s open and closed on Boxing Day in Brampton:


    • Walmart
