"Nationally, Boxing Day is going to be slightly bigger than last year, probably in the order of about 2 to 3 per cent more in terms of retail sales," Mr Evans said.
"Western Australia would probably be looking at about $250 million worth of sales on Boxing Day, so that's about 15 per cent of the nation's (spend).
