It’s almost time for the biggest retail holiday of the year! With less than two weeks to go, we share all the details you need to know!
What is Black Friday?
Immediately following the festivities of Thanksgiving, Black Friday is the most important day of the American retail calendar.
Although the annual Thanksgiving celebration stretches back hundreds of years, Black Friday is a far more recent tradition, starting in the 1950s. The day after Thanksgiving, savvy customers pack into their cars or jump online to find the best deals. It’s an ideal opportunity to stock up on gifts for Christmas, marking the official start of the holiday season.
Black Friday is now a global event. International retailers have embraced the opportunity to boost their sales with time-limited and exclusive deals. In fact, Black Friday has been extended to cover the entire week of Thanksgiving, as well as Cyber Monday the following week. All around the world, shoppers are counting down the days until they can score special festive savings!
When is Black Friday 2019?
Mark your calendars! This year, Black Friday is on 29 November.
What’s Trending This Year?
Tech is hot in 2019! Keep an eye on Amazon and Best Buy for seasonal savings on phones, laptops, tablets, smart speakers, TVs, consoles, and games.
American supermarkets are also a great tip for massive deals on homeware, toys, and tech. Walmart and Target lead the pack, but it’s worth checking out regional and smaller retailers, too.
Black Friday is always a good time to refresh your wardrobe, with huge discounts on brands such as American Eagle, Old Navy, Levis, Gap, and Nike. Department stores like Macy’s, Kohl’s, JCPenney, and Nordstrom also have amazing offers.
Last but not least, beauty is timeless – take the opportunity to stock up on your favourite brands for less! Sephora is the number 1 destination, but you’ll also find gorgeous deals at Ulta, Morphe, and FeelUnique.
The best part of modern Black Friday is that you can catch all these savings without having to battle the in-store crowds and long lines at the checkout. Simply go online to bag yourself a deal!
