Black Friday!

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday began in 1932 and is the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the U.S. It begins the day after Thanksgiving Day in the United States which is the fourth Thursday of November. Most major retailers open very early and are also open overnight offering promotional sales.

Black Friday in the UK!

Amazon.co.uk started offering Black Friday discounts in 2010 since then Currys and PC World also joined in with the Black Friday sales and offered an online price crash in 2012.

In 2015 John Lewis and Asda also started offering Black Friday discounts and it then really took off in the UK. This year UK shoppers are expected to spend even more online than previous years, so hopefully we can all get some bargains this November!
