Black Friday is the first Friday after the American Traditional Thanksgiving and is often regarded as the start of the Christmas shopping season. It’s a US invention that’s crept it’s way into UK culture, as so many things have done.
Retailers latch on to any excuse to attract shoppers with special offers and discounts, this one has grown & grown over here.
This year Thanksgiving falls on Thursday 24th November so Black Friday will be on the 25th. A lot of UK shops & businesses have jumped on the band wagon & see this as a good opportunity to give some great discounts to boost their Christmas sales.
If you are looking for a big ticket item or a special gift it would probably be a good idea to have a look on line at the relevant stores to see if you can get a bargain or at least some reduction in the price. But do your homework first, find out if it is really at it’s lowest price.
Remember it’s only a bargain if you need it.
I know Amazon are running some amazing offers all week that change every 10 minutes,
