As the countdown to Christmas gets ever closer, savvy shoppers welcome the Black Friday event, which presents an ideal opportunity to buy Christmas gifts at knock-out prices.
As technology has evolved, the internet has allowed shoppers to purchase their discounted goods at the touch of a button, rather than competitively queuing at stores from the early hours of the morning.
It’s no surprise to see that the American phenomenon, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, has had a massive influence on the retail market in the UK over the last few years. In 2017, it was estimated that the total national spending finished up 8% higher when compared to 2016.
Originating from Philadelphia in the 1960’s, Black Friday was coined to mark the run-up to the Christmas shopping season. ‘Black’ refers to stores moving from the ‘red’ to the ‘black’ markers when accounting records where drawn-up by hand. Red ink indicated a loss, whereas black ink represented a profit.
As the retail industry prepares for a busy end of the month, the days leading up to this year’s Black Friday (November 23) and Cyber Monday (November 26) will inevitably ignite the excitement with shoppers across the nation.
This year, leading high-street retailer, Robert Dyas is ready to unveil its Black Friday bonanza for 2018. The infectious shopaholic mood is set to kick off from Tuesday November 20 in preparation for Black Friday, running for eight days to November 28, so the phrase ‘shop till you drop’ will be close to reality.
Rebecca Waters, Robert Dyas’ Head of Marketing says, “We’re very excited to launch our best Black Friday deals to date. For shoppers, this is a fantastic opportunity to get their hands on a wide variety of high-ticket items at a significantly reduced price. We at Robert Dyas take pride in offering value for money at all times of the year, but we expect a particularly high volume of traffic both in store and online during this busy period.”
