Us Brits do love a good bargain and this weekend there will be plenty to be had. In less than 48 hours time, on November 27, Black Friday returns promising bargains all round.
Another holiday that we pinched from the US (over there, it’s held the day after Thanksgiving and seen as the first day of the Christmas sales), the mega-shopping event is basically an excuse for shops to slash their prices – and organised shoppers to pick up all of their Christmas presents at more affordable prices. Or finally splurge on that lusted-after Whistles coat…
Don’t panic if you’re working on Friday as most of the sales will last all weekend until Cyper Monday on November 30 comes round – there’s ample shopping opportunity.
Not all British retailers are getting involved. Selfridges, Harrods and Net-A-Porter have chosen not to take part in a the event that follows a holiday we don’t even celebrate, but plenty of other shops will be hanging up their “sale” signs to entice you in.
