The UK has finally woken up to the pre-Christmas sales bonanza!
Once a simple shopping tradition that has now escalated into two of the biggest retail events on the shopping calendar – a weekend full of cheap deals, discounts and epic price reductions.
Thanks to a lot of these sales appearing online and the majority of the larger companies also serving the UK such as Amazon and Apple, the sales have now made their way across the pond to the UK.
Black Friday, falling on the Friday after the American National Holiday, Thanksgiving, represents the perfect storm for retailers as many people in the United States have the day off resulting in being one of the busiest shopping days of the year, according to Tech Rader. The day originally stems from when the retailers were thought to have made enough money to put them ‘in the black’ for the year, basically meaning that they were not going to be at a loss!
This day is now closely followed by ‘Cyber Monday’, known for being the first Monday after the last payday before Christmas which is now arguably the more important day for the British businesses. Having spent the weekend browsing the sites, by Monday you will be ready to make those purchases and take advantage of those ‘one day only’ super savings.
What with all the hype, press and media coverage that has increased over the last few years, this has resulted in a build up of pressure on the businesses and retailers who are now expected to reach high volumes of sales and profits over the coming weekend.
Even though the Brits tend not to celebrate the American Holiday, we do on the other hand love the opportunity to shop and are all fans of finding a few bargains. It brings the ideal opportunity to grab some great Christmas bargains and avoid the last minute Christmas Eve rush at the shops. But now with the high percentage of the British public having access to the internet via their Mobiles, Smart Phones and Tablets there will be no need to leave the house this weekend to shop for those super savings. So sit back on the sofa with a glass of vino, and shop online this weekend at Saxtys Wines. 3 Days of Deals with our Festive Favourite Offers – we have selected our favourite Whites, Reds, Sparkling Wines and Champagnes to help you celebrate the festive and party season!
