So, just when does the John Lewis sale start, and what deals can you expect? Here’s everything you need to know.
When does the John Lewis sale start?
In 2022, Christmas Day and Boxing Day fall over the weekend and on a Bank Holiday, as 25 December is a Sunday while 26 December is a Monday. John Lewis is just one of 11 UK retailers and supermarkets who have decided to close their stores on Boxing Day in 2022, however, to give their staff the chance to enjoy an extra day off over Christmas.
John Lewis is therefore launching its ‘Boxing Day sale’ a day later on Tuesday 27 December, with most shops opening doors from as early as 9am - but please check your local store. The same thing happened in 2021, when Boxing Day fell on a Sunday. Trading laws will only allow shops to open for up to six hours on a Sunday, giving limited time for browsing and transactions, so Next made the decision to close for an extra day then too.
Will the John Lewis sale 2022 be available online?
John Lewis is expected to make its annual Boxing Day sale available through its website from Christmas Eve 2022, Saturday 24 December. This means that for those who prefer to shop from the comfort of their sofa, they can do so early.
For those who can’t wait for the launch of the official John Lewis boxing day sale, the retailer has launched some pre-Christmas sales and offers which you can take advantage of on the John Lewis website right now. There are deals on womenswear, menswear, baby and child and homeware.
What is the John Lewis sale 2022?

Can I return John Lewis sale items?
Yes, you can return items from John Lewis which you have bought in the sale. The sale items have the exact same returns policy as full priced items, and this applies to online or in-store purchases. Items must be returned within 35 days, you must have a receipt and items must be unused. For online purchases, John Lewis refund the standard delivery charge if the full order is returned within 14 days.
Are other retailers going to be open on Boxing Day 2022?
Many retailers will keep with tradition and open their doors on Boxing Day, but there are some that will stay closed an extra day.
Changes to online shopping habits, however, mean that although some physical shops will be closed, many stores will still launch their sales online on Boxing Day so people can shop from the comfort of their own homes. People will also be able to shop in-store on either 26 or 27 December, depending on the opening hours of the specific retailer.
