Shoppers have been scrambling to find the best bargains during Chadstone's Boxing Day Sale.
Many great deals are on offer, with some retailers offering up to 60% off.
Some stores were so popular that they required queueing at their entrance and a security guard to prevent overcrowding in the store and also possible theft.
Like Christmas Eve, Boxing Day was as hectic as ever, with queues on Middle Rd stretching all the way out to Monash Freeway.
The Centre generally closes at 10pm tonight (Boxing Day)
, although Myer and David Jones will continue their Boxing Day trading until midnight.
In Victoria, shoppers are expected to spend over $588m on Boxing Day. Consumer Affairs Minister Michael O'Brian has reminded everyone that retailers with a 'No Refunds' policy on sale items may be illegal. Consumer law applies equally for items bought at their normal price as well as when 'on sale'. Consumers retain their right to a refund or exchange if goods they purchase are faulty, defective or not as described. Individual stores or shops have the discretion on whether they will issue refunds or exchanges for 'change of mind' purchases.
