Stats from PWC show that those of us who plan to shop this Black Friday will be spending a whopping £5 billion over the course of the weekend.
The annual festival of consumerism falls this year on Friday 23 November (as ever, on the first Friday after Thanksgiving).
While some will be getting gifts for their loved ones ahead of Christmas, plenty will be eschewing the spirit of giving altogether and treating ourselves instead.
There are plenty of great bargains to be had when it comes to clothes, and some stores will be hitting us with discounts of up to 70%.
Heres what we know so far, but well keep the page updated as we find out more.
Topshop last year offered up to 50% off, and added the sweetener of free delivery.
It could be the same this year, but so far weve heard nothing from the brand. They have got a sale on already if you really cant wait, though.
Asos are being extremely tight-lipped about what their discounts will be on the day.
We contacted them, but were told its all a secret until everything goes live.
Club members will likely get the best prices on Black Friday this year, as there tends to be an extra 10% off sale prices for them.
For everyone else, and based on past Black Fridays, it could be up to half price on selected lines.
Its a veritable smorgasbord of bargains in the run up to Black Friday. Heres what you can expect:
- Thursday/Friday 16/17 November – Up to 30% off selected brands
- Monday/Tuesday 19/20 November – Up to 50% off going out
- Wednesday/Thurdays 21/22 November – Up to 50% off winter shop
- Friday and weekend – 50% off hundreds of lines
- Cyber Monday – 20% off and free delivery
If last year is anything to go by, there could be big savings to be had at New Look.
In 2017, there was 25% across the site and in-store, and the sale lasted from the start of Black Friday to the end of Cyber Monday.
Due to recent store closures, there may be a limited menswear selection in your chosen location, so have a look beforehand if theres anything you have your eye on.
Pretty Little Thing
