Black Friday usually takes place on the last Friday in November, and marks together with the Cyber Monday the start of the Christmas gift-buying season. Although it originated in the United States as an accompaniment to the Thanksgiving holiday, Black Friday has spread across the world, and has become a fixture of the retail calendar in the United Kingdom as well.
In the UK, Black Friday is associated with the point at which firms start to register a profit for the year (hence, making it "into the black"). It has really taken off in the past three years, with online sales taking up a huge proportion of the discounted sales. In previous years, the event has been known for promotional stunts and crowds surging into stores as they open. This year, shoppers can secure the best deals online to avoid any hassle, and all of the best discounts can be found at HotUKDeals.
Outdoor Gear Bargains at Blacks
As the UK's largest retailer of outdoor goods, Blacks are a leading high street retailer and they have taken to Black Friday in a big way. In 2014, the firm launched its #BlacksCyberWeekend to coincide with Black Friday, offering big discounts on popular products like Berghaus and Montane Jackets specifically for the event. North Face Hedgehog shoes were heavily discounted as were high performance Berghaus Expeditor hiking boots. At 2015's Black Friday event, Blacks had several tents from Vango at good prices on offer. Last year, the event paused at Blacks, but it doesn't mean that this year's event is no money saver.
