The night before Christmas Eve will see shops open longer than usual in Douglas.
Many stores in the capital will stay open late on Monday, December 23.
‘With many shops opting to stay open to around 9pm on the 23rd people - especially those working that day - will have a more relaxed opportunity to do their last-minute shopping rather than having to cope with the crowds on Christmas Eve,’ said town centre manager Michelle O’Malley.
‘We’re also hoping to have some street performers adding to the atmosphere and a number of shops that evening will be offering discounts . . . after all, it is the season of goodwill.’
Late-night shopping before Christmas in Douglas usually takes place on a Thursday.
