Ribble Cycles Black Friday deals: when will they be available?
Black Friday has kicked off at Ribble Cycles with daily deals on a whole range of products, and new bargains released each day over the coming week.
That’s a similar strategy to Evans Cycles, which released its deals on 18 November, the seven days before Black Friday, or even Chain Reaction Cycles, which jumped the gun by a long way on 3 November, releasing three sets of fresh deals over the following weeks.
It’s worth monitoring the company’s Facebook and Twitter profiles for any clues as to the deals that might be released and act fast when they do become available, as the biggest bargains are likely to be snapped up quickly by savvy online shoppers.
Ribble Cycles’ Black Friday deals will continue to be available all the way through to Cyber Monday on 28 November.
Ribble Cycles Black Friday deals: what to expect
As a company whose business has been built around offering great value own-brand bikes, expect a lot of the biggest Ribble Cycles Black Friday deals to centre on Ribble bikes.
Recently Ribble has been promoting a “Bike of the Week” on Facebook, with deals such as this Ribble R872 with Shimano Dura-Ace available for just £1849.99. We would expect similar amazing deals to be available for Black Friday 2016, but of course with a lot more deals to choose from. The only thing we don’t expect is for discounts to be extended to the company’s bike builder, with discounts concentrated on set bike builds.
Away from bikes, a considerable of number of deals should also be available on a whole host of other goodies, and with electronics a traditional focus of Black Friday buying, there should be a lot of bargains available on cycling gadgets, such as those from the Garmin Edge computer range.
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.
