Evans Cycles Black Friday deals: when will they be available?
A week ahead of the day itself, Evans Cycles Black Friday deals are already available, and will be updated every day until 25 November, with the discounts ending on 29 November, the day after Cyber Monday.
This is similar to what the company has done in previous years. For example for Black Friday 2015, Evans started releasing deals from 20 November, seven days before the day itself. These deals were then updated on a daily basis, with the best deals being promoted on the company’s Facebook page.
For those wanting to get a heads up on the best deals ahead of time, the company already has a page on its website with a countdown to the big day, which will be updated with piles of deals on 18 November. There is also the option to sign up to the Evans Cycles Black Friday mailing list, with customers getting £5 off their first order.
If that wasn’t enough, then the Evans Cycles Black Friday deals continued through the weekend to Cyber Monday, meaning that you had a full 11 days of huge savings.
Evans Cycles Black Friday deals: what to expect
As the only major retailer to be a big player both online and in bricks and mortar store, Evans Cycles should have a lot to offer this Black Friday, so expect discounts of more than 50 per cent to be available n the website and on the high street.
For Black Friday 2016, we’re expecting Evans is planning to follow a similar pattern, with a range of different products form a variety of categories thrown into the Black Friday pot with heavy discounts, with more deals added into the mix on Black Friday itself.
This should mean discounts across the board on wheels, saddles, tyres, clothing, and a whole lot more. There could also be some bargains to be found on cycling gadgets, such as computers from the Garmin Edge range (Evans Cycles was offering £40 off on the Garmin Edge 25 last year) with electronics a traditional focus of Black Friday buying.
Another part of the Evans Cycles Black Friday deals should be some pretty tasty vouchers. For example you got a £10 voucher if you spent between £60 and £100, and a £20 voucher if you spent anything more than that.
Other than that there should be deals everywhere, with Black Friday being the perfect time for picking up bargains on end-of-season 2016 kit that will have you fully kitted out for 2017 with plenty of time to spare.
What is Black Friday?
For consumers and retailers in the UK, Black Friday is a recent phenomenon, but it has been going strong the United States for decades.
Black Friday is the first Friday after Thanksgiving (which in 2016 is 25 November), and is traditionally seen as the start of the Christmas shopping season, with high street retailers opening their doors at the crack of dawn and offering big discounts for shoppers who have set their alarm clocks.
The rise of internet shopping has allowed the Black Friday tradition to spread throughout the world, with the UK’s bike retailers like Wiggle, Chain Reaction, Evans Cycles, and Ribble Cycles all getting caught up in the scramble to get shoppers to part with their cash.
