Gaming Bargain this Black Friday
The idea of Black Friday is simple. Knowing that the festive season is their key period, American stores needed a way to jump-start their sales effort. They discovered that shoppers responded to a post-Thanksgiving sales push seeing the end of November as the natural time to start bargain hunting.
A few years ago, British shops started to offer huge Black Friday reductions, sparking chaotic scenes when thousands of shoppers turned up outside major stores. The weekend from Black Friday to Cyber Monday starting on the 25th November this year is now crucial to retailers' bottom lines, with spending increasing by around 20% year on year. The event has also become more and more internet-based. Shoppers want to stock up on Christmas presents from the comfort of their own homes.
