Boxing Day sales in Toronto 2014

Boxing Day sales in Toronto feature all the usual suspects - mainly, big-box electronics stores inevitably selling you the thing you bent over backwards to buy for little Jimmy at half-off. Chain retailers are opening up early to accomodate shoppers, but if you're looking for something a little more specialized (or localized), a lot of smaller shops are getting in on the act.

Here are my picks for the top Boxing Day sales in Toronto in 2014.

Target
If you're in the market for a TV, head down to Target, where they've got 48-inch models for as low as $299.99; they've also got notable deals on tablets (a Samsung Galaxy tab is $278, marked down from $379) and kitchen appliances.

Future Shop
Nobody does Boxing Day like Future Shop (and its parallel-universe twin, Best Buy). Among the deals: Polk Audio bookshelf speakers for $199 ($230 off) and Nikon D7100 camera bundles for $1199 ($305 off), though you'll find a sale in every section.

Best Buy
Among the Boxing Day steals at the electronic chain's locations: A Canon Rebel T5 DSLR bundle for $499.99 (that's $300 off), 13.3" i5 MacBook Airs for $999.99 ($200 off) and Xbox/Kinect bundles for $349.99 ($150 off).

Sporting Life
The sporting goods chain is doing a bunch of 7-9am doorcrasher deals, including 50% off down and insulated coats, running shoes, skis and snowboards.

Dutil
Here's a novel one: Bring the oldest nickel you can find to the Queen St. denim shop on Boxing Day, and you can win a free or half-off pair of jeans. (If you don't have a coin collection hanging around, just go and snag up to 93% off a pair of your own.)

Chosen Vintage
At this spooky-chic vintage boutique on West Queen West, all clothing (minus consignment and tie-dyed silks) will be 30% off.

Kind Exchange
On Boxing Day, snag half-off all inventory at all of the resale clothing chain's locations - plus, their 611 Queen St. West store is doing a "fill a bag sale for $20" sale.

Holt Renfrew
Feeling fancy? Get up to 60% off fall styles at the department store's Bloor and Yorkdale locations.

Parloque
The West Queen West boutique, a purveyor of independent lines from around the world, is doing markdowns of up to 60% off.

Working Title
The Boxing Day sale at this art-focus men's boutique is already on, with markdowns of up to 50% on their website and in store.

Sydney's
On Queen St., Sydney's is already offering deals of up to 75% off on designer clothing.

Off The Cuff
Near Yonge and Eglinton, grab some gently-used designer menswear for between 50% and 75% off.

Aritzia
Looking for some new yoga pants or silk blouses? Aritzia stores are doing between $20 and $50 off on Boxing Day.

TNT
The store's Hazelton Lanes, Bayview Village and Eglinton locations will all be offering designer threads for up to 70% off.

H&M
Brave enough to queue up early for the sales? H&M will be handing out scratch cards for up to $300 off for early risers. (Everyone else can get deals for as low as $5.)

Gotstyle
Men's and women's clothing are up to 70% off at their Distillery and Bathurst boutiques.

The Narwhal
Shop designer finds (think Acne, Helmut Lang and Rachel Comey) from 30 to 70% off at this Rosedale boutique.
