Black Friday

16 Nov

Black Friday is coming fast, the day where bargain hunters across the world try and grab themselves a great deal heading into the festive period.

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday was originally an American only tradition, dropping on the day after Thanksgiving each year. Retailers offer massive discounts on products in an attempt to persuade you to spend your money in the run-up to the festive period.  Recently the rest of the world has also adopted this as a day to offer discounts on their product range.

When is Black Friday?

This year Black Friday will happen on Friday 27th November. However, some retailers will start their week of deals on Monday 23rd November.
