Black Friday 2015 is just around the corner and its going to be a big one. Retailers and consumers alike are anticipating the highest sales day on record with many believing over £1 billion will be spent on this day alone. Combined with Cyber Monday, retailers will witness a surge in traffic (and sales) over this period.
Many retailers hate the concept of Black Friday, whilst the turn around of stock is high, they are expected to slash prices and in-turn are cutting their profits. This is particularly prominent on tech products which already have very narrow profit margins. Critics argue that the concept of Black Friday isn’t right as consumers would be expected to buy these products over the festive period regardless – MP’s and some businesses want people to boycott Black Friday.
In short, good for consumers, bad for retailers.
Its currently to early to know the exact details of any deals as most companies want to keep their promotions secret until the last minute to avoid competitors under-pricing them. It is clear however that Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles are going to be heavily discounted over this period. For those of you who have been holding off getting a console until the price fell – you wont be disappointed.
Zavvi are promising some of the biggest savings on Xbox and PlaySation consoles, as well as discounts on Blu-rays, laptops and games. They offered some serious deals in 2014 so we’re only expecting good things this year.
