A lot of things have moved or been pushed back as a result of The Virus. But what about Black Friday? When will this reliable day of deals be running? Read on for all the details we know about Black Friday 2020 UK…

Will Black Friday 2020 UK happen?

Yes! We’ve no doubt that the season of sales will still be massively popular, with deals centred primarily around Black Friday and Cyber Monday, followed by the inevitable stream of pre-Christmas shopping.

However, with social distancing measures in place in the UK, and people remaining cautious of big crowds, it remains to be seen whether physical shops will have massive rushes for savings like they typically do.

Some stores might voluntarily cancel or restrict Black Friday, although the potential to make up lost income makes this unlikely. Or, the government might step in and say they can’t start letting in hordes of people.

There will still be plenty of big deals online though, don’t you worry!

When will Black Friday 2020 UK be?

Black Friday this year will be on Friday 27th November 2020.

As is typical these days though, you’ll see deals starting way earlier than that. Some retailers try to get in on the action as early as October. “Black Friday Week” is the biggest point of activity, so look out for the best deals kicking off from Monday 23rd all the way through to Monday 30th November 2020.

Despite coronavirus, Black Friday can’t really be moved. It has a long tradition of taking place the day after Thanksgiving in the US, which always happens on the fourth Thursday of November.
