And here's a little background
Black Friday is a relatively recent import, which last year rocketed to become the biggest shopping day of the year in the UK. Britons spent more than £800m in 24 hours – but that figure is expected to be dwarfed this year, with estimates ranging from £1bn to £1.8bn.
However, a debate continues over whether it is actually beneficial to those who take part, given the deep discounts that have to be offered, and the reputational damage that some retailers suffered last year when brawls broke out in stores up and down the country.
