Black Friday could become the UK’s first £1 billion online shopping day as consumers and retailers prepare for the annual bargain frenzy.
Black Friday this year is shaping up to be less Hunger Games, more supermarket sweep.
The deals are the same, the prizes are low, but this year Britain seems to be taking a far cooler approach – playing tug of war over a plasma T.V?
That is so last year.
In the spirit of this new-found calm, and to make the day of deals more convenient for you, we’re listing the best promotions here as a handy reference – that way you can go straight to the stores you want without being distracted by the dash.
Stick to your list, follow our guide to the top places to shop and you’ll have done most of your Christmas shopping before you know it
Online retailers are braced for a shopper onslaught from midnight as deals go live, while some stores will open their doors from the early morning to customers hoping to snatch bargains on everything from TVs to slippers.
Police have warned shops to ensure they have carefully thought-out security plans in place for the sales following chaos at a number of stores across the UK last year when huge crowds grappled for cut-price televisions and other big-ticket items.
Stores have been sending out teaser deals all week, but they are set to announce their biggest savings today, claiming customers can save anything from £10 on a DVD boxset to hundreds of pounds off large kitchen appliances and home technology.
