Black Friday 2019 in the UK

What to expect?

Black Friday has grown into one of the UK’s major shopping sales events and is an ideal time to get Christmas presents. More and more retailers join the sale every year, and British customers spend billions of pounds during the sale. Some keen shoppers queue up outside their favourite shops to be the first in at opening time. To cope with the demand, some stores operate extended opening hours. You can also shop the sale online.

Some retailer websites offer a blanket percentage discount such as up to 30% off across the whole range. Other online retailers will discount products like up to 70% off certain items. Major retailers such as Amazon, Currys PC World, GAME, ASOS, John Lewis, Argos and many others join the sale every year. You can check out the participating shops for 2018 here.

About Black Friday

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is one of the world’s biggest shopping sales and in the UK it grows every year. Customers can find huge discounts both online and in stores, with many different products on sale. Some of the most popular buys during Black Friday include tech and electronics, fashion, beauty and homewares. Black Friday once became notorious for crowded shops and customers fighting for the biggest deals. Recently, retailers have wised up to the appeal of the sale and now take measures to avoid the violent scenes of previous years. If you are one to avoid the crowds, you can also shop most sales online, from the comfort of your home. Find out more about the Black Friday sale here.

Origin of Black Friday

Black Friday began in the US over 50 years ago. There are two explanations for its name. Some people say that it refers to troubles during the beginning of the Christmas shopping season and was nicknamed Black Friday by the police, while others say it refers to stores going from the red into the black as they began to make a profit before Christmas. Either way, the name has stuck and is now well known across the globe.
