When is Black Friday 2018?

Black Friday is traditionally the day following the US holiday of Thanksgiving and this year falls on Friday 23rd November.

It is regarded as the unofficial start of the Christmas shopping period and despite being an American commercial tradition in recent years many UK retailers have started hopping on the trend spurred on by US owned retailers such as ASDA (owned by Walmart) and Amazon.

What UK shops are participating in Black Friday?

Most high street and online retailers will be offering their own bespoke Black Friday deals but here are the retailers running big offers on the day.

Big deals to look out for this year come from the usual huge names on the high street and online shopping world.
