Now That You've Survived Christmas...Scarlett Lounge Brings You "The Boxing Day Survival Guide"...

...For everything that wasn't under the tree.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 22, 2008) - Scarlett Lounge, Canada's premiere shopping community for women, is pleased to celebrate the National Holiday of Shopping - BOXING DAY! However, as with many great things in life, Boxing Day does not come without its challenges: long lines, huge crowds and parking nightmares.

Whether you're a seasoned shopper or a novice, the shopping experts at Scarlett Lounge have a complete Survival Guide to help you navigate the stores, either online or in person, to get the most coveted items:

Survival Tip #1: Be Prepared. Find out where the best deals are by visiting the Scarlett Lounge Deals and Steals (http://scarlett.redflagdeals.com/deals/) section and Forums (http://scarlett.redflagdeals.com/forums/). Get a head start online with up-to-date deals and find out which stores have sales so you'll be ahead of the crowds. The forums might even have wait times and parking updates from Scarlett Lounge shoppers!

Survival Tip #2: Don't be afraid to go it alone. Anything that slows you down is a bad idea on Boxing Day - including indecisive friends and those who really don't want to shop (a.k.a. most men). Like-minded friends are perfect - they can hold a place in line while you decide on size/colour/quantity.

Survival Tip #3: Avoid 2 pm. This is peak Boxing Day madness time. Check the Scarlett Lounge Nationwide List of Boxing Day Mall Hours (http://scarlett.redflagdeals.com/seasonal/boxing-day-2008/mall-hours) and plan accordingly (remember this is a nationwide list, so plan ahead for most Canadian destinations!). To avoid the crowds, be among the first few at opening time or go during mealtimes. Note: If you wait until the end of the day to hit the stores, you run the risk of missing out on hot sale items.

For a complete copy of the Boxing Day Survival Guide, you can go to: http://scarlett.redflagdeals.com - but not until December 24th! In the meantime, visit: http://scarlett.redflagdeals.com/seasonal/holiday-guide-2008/ for the Holiday Gift Guide.
