UK electrical retailers Currys and PC World (both owned by Dixons Retail) will be participating in the American “phenomenon” of the Black Friday sales.
“The Black Friday shopping deal phenomenon began in the US. It’s always the Friday after Thanksgiving Day and is seen as the kickoff for the shopping season leading up to Christmas. Shops open early and there are big savings online and in-store in time-limited deals – it’s the perfect time to get your Christmas shopping started. It’s also followed by Cyber Monday, another day of big online discounts.”
The thing is, Thanksgiving isn’t celebrated in the UK, so why do the retailers feel the need to push this “phenomenon” upon us?
Let’s just hope we don’t see the same scenes as last year when Asda decided to join in with Black Friday –
Besides all of that, some of you may well find some great deals on tech next week, that’s if you can get past the hordes of parents fighting over incredibly cheap PS4s.
