Christmas is nearly here, but without sounding like Ebenezer Scrooge, this means the January sales are fast approaching, too!
January can be a bleak time, but booking a day trip or a holiday can give you something to get excited about during this time of year.
One of the great things about January is that many high street favourites are laden with discounts that you’d be silly to miss out on!

The Galleries, Washington
The Galleries in Washington contains over 200 stores across a retail park and a shopping centre. Popular retailers include Next, Marks and Spencer and Bonmarche.
If you’re peckish you can stop by one of the many restaurants and cafes. Gillies is a hearty café serving home cooked food at reasonable prices – or check out Redz Fish and Chip Shop for some tasty cod bites!
Middleton Grange, Hartlepool
The next stop is Hartlepool and for those seasoned shoppers, this makes for round two. Check out Middleton Grange shopping centre, home to over 140 stores and a market hall full of stalls.
