INCLEMENT weather did not deter Toowoomba shoppers who hit the city's stores today in record numbers.

With the promise of huge discounts the annual Boxing Day sales did not disappoint.

A brave few hunkered down in the miserable weather outside Harvey Norman, JB HiFi and Myer at Grand Central Shopping Centre keen to be the first through the doors and snap up a bargain.

City retailers are confident the multi-million dollar post-Christmas spend will cap off a successful festive season all-round.

Queensland police have sent additional personnel to both Grand Central and Clifford Garden Shopping Centres to cope with the increased traffic volumes on roads surrounding both centres.

It is predicted that Queensland shoppers will spend about $3 billion during the sales period according to peak retail industry body the Australian Retailers Association.

Queenslanders are expected to spend $338.3 million today and $261.8 million tomorrow.
