Buying a TV - do they do xmas/new year/boxing day sales here?

Hi, I am thinking about buying a new TV in Switzerland. As I have only been living here a couple of months I have no idea whether we can expect similar post xmas sales over here? Is it worth waiting?

I live in Basel but happy to shop online if anyone knows of any good websites.. any help much appreciated!

No boxing-day sales here, as it is a holiday and all stores are closed!

Note - there are sales here, but typically they start after the Christmas holidays and there's not quite the rush you see in the UK.

There are great deals post Christmas, in the month of January. If you can hold on till then, majority of the shops have sales.
