Get your wallets at the ready and your running shoes on; it's time to grab a bargain as Black Friday is almost here.

 

Despite being an American tradition, falling on the Friday following Thanksgiving in the United States (which is the fourth Thursday of November), the annual shopping bonanza has gone global with hundreds of retailers around the world slashing their prices to tempt shoppers with big bargain deals.

What is Black Friday, when exactly is it and where are the best 2015 UK bargains?

Here's all the essential information about the biggest shopping day of the year: what it is, when it is and how you can get your hands on the best deals and discounts

 

Video and article.If this is what Black Friday is like i will be staying in that day.

I believe in some stores police had to be called last year.

Is it fun for some,or do you dread this day.

 

Maybe you are in retail and have a story to tell.

Maybe you are hungry for a bargain.

 

Are you a cashier,a security guard perhaps.

A difficult day for being a security guard or a assistant in these stores,i should imagine.

 

Some stores i have heard many workers try to book the day off.

To shop themselves,or to maybe avoid the rush.

How to Survive Black Friday with Basic Self Defense

Black Friday––that one day where it seems almost everybody is out seeking the best deals on all sorts of gifts for the holidays. It can be a maddening, chaotic day to get things done, but with some common sense, patience and basics borrowed from self defense principles, Black Friday can be managed with little stress.

I first heard of it when I lived in the USA from 2005 - 2008. I found the idea quite unpleasant then, and was disappointed when it became a "thing" over here as well. I'm not some sort of anti-consumer moralist or anything, but this day seems to bring out the worst in some people.

Hi antone,

I have just been looking in America.

The retailers are already advertising for this day.Heavily.

There does not yet seem to be many British Retailers trying as hard to entice people in.

Yet.

Well, we don't have Thanksgiving as the hook. I always thought of Thanksgiving as a fairly unassuming but rather nice holiday: people will eat and drink (in some cases) a lot and spend time with family and friends, but there were no gifts or rampant commercialisation. Well, not until someone thought up Black Friday at least. Interestingly, a lot of retailers in the US are now announcing that they will be closed on Thanksgiving Day itself - apparently they think that doing so will help their sales. This has to be a good thing.

 

I'd be quite happy if the whole "Black Friday" thing died a death here, though I suppose it's too late for that now.

Ah -Asda.

I saw pictures of this in my town last year.

Like wolves after TVS.I had never seen anything like it.Fighting over a TV.

A wise decision perhaps.

I feel staff are in danger at this time,saw some nearly in tears.

This has roused me to take camera and observe things.On this day to come.
