Black Friday

Been so caught up with coursework this week. My Monday until Thursday were filled with library sessions apart from attending the usual classes. I’m going to say bye bye to this view for today..

And attend to one of the emails that says this…

Yeap a trip to Bicester Village with my sister in a few hours, in shaa Allah. I just googled what Black Friday is and found that it originated from US. Wikipedia defines it as:

Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year in the biggest economy in the world.”

and Telegraph traced back its history and shared these facts:

“Retailers have the Philadelphia Police Department to thank for Black Friday. It was the American police who, during the 1950s and 1960s, gave the name to the day after Thanksgiving because of the chaos that ensued in the city as shoppers flocked to the high street sales while spectators travelled to the annual Army vs Navy American football match. 
Shops in Philadelphia pushed for the day to be known by the more flattering “Big Friday”. For them, the day after Thanksgiving was vital – it was the day that shoppers started their Christmas shopping and they wanted as many people as possible through their doors. 
Indeed, the day was so crucial that retailers pushed the US government to move Thanksgiving to earlier in November so there was more time for Christmas shopping.”

For Black Friday which is today, shops and cafes in Bicester will be open from 9am until midnight! And their offers are amazing.
These screenshots are for everyday offers until Christmas. There’s another tab for more offers from participating outlet shops specifically just for Black Friday. These shops have different time slots and give additional discounts on top of the already discounted items but only for 1 hour (5-6pm) (6-7pm) (7-8pm) (8-9pm) (9-10pm).
I heard some of my friends are going for Black Friday shopping in Bristol too. Wherever we are, happy shopping guys  and let’s not spend too excessively!
