27th November 2015
Black Friday is the bargains hunters big shopping day of the year and the day where stores offer great reductions of products in the lead up to Christmas. On this day last year, the UK spent a record £810 million and we are set to spend even more this year.
When Is Black Friday?
This year Black Friday is 27th November 2015. Some on-line some sales start just after midnight on the Friday morning whilst others start at 8am. Most stores are opening as usual but some will be opening early for this special sale day. Though traditionally the offers were only valid on the Friday, many stores and sites are holding their sale throughout the weekend. If you can’t get to the shops, don’t worry many on-line sits are saving their deals for Cyber Monday, Monday 30th November 2015.
Where Did The Black Friday Tradition Come From?
The tradition began in America and is similar to our Boxing Day sales, and is seen as the first day of the Christmas sales in America. The last Thursday in November is their Thanksgiving and the following day is Black Friday. The reason for the names appears to be from the fact it is the day when many shops see their biggest profit and move from the red into the black.
Black Friday is relatively a new concept to the UK, but you may remember the scenes from last year when queues outside a well known supermarket led to a stampede for flat screen tv’s. This year, more stores than ever before are joining in the special pre-Christmas sales day. So where are the best Beauty-Deals to be found?
Tips To Survive Black Friday
Firstly, don’t panic. Although it is named Black Friday after the American sales, many stores are running their offers over the whole weekend. Internet stores are also continuing their sales into Monday – Cyber Monday. Don’t expect massive savings. While there may be a lot of hype over Black Friday, the biggest deals are usually on expensive electrical products and often there is only a few of these available in each store. Don’t get tempted to buy what you don’t need just because it is cheaper. Write a list of the gifts you need and stick to the lists. It’s not really a saving if you buy something you don’t need or want.
