It’s that time of year again which means that in just over one week’s time many of the UK’s largest retailers will be participating in the annual Black Friday event, which sees prices being slashed on thousands of different products across a wide range of categories.
Whether you’re an avid bargain hunter who is looking to find the ultimate discount, or you’re considering making a purchase and would like to save some money if possible, Black Friday is for you. By putting your purchases off until the 25th November you could save yourself as much as 50% on the RRP if you shop at any of the stores that are participating this year.
Unfortunately not all retailers participate in Black Friday due to the fact that the last two years events did cause some controversy, and Black Friday is not quite as popular in the UK as it is in the USA. Nevertheless there are quite a few of the nation’s retailers participating so if you’re looking to save some money on your early Christmas shopping then Black Friday is definitely the time to do it.
Here are the stores that have confirmed that they will be participating in Black Friday on 25th November, 2016:
