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 many of the UK’s bike retailers getting caught up in the scramble to get shoppers to part with their cash.
