What is Black Friday?
Black Friday comes the day after Thanksgiving. Since the 1950s it’s grown and grown to become the biggest day in the commercial calendar for retailers, and combined with Cyber Monday which follows it, it’s the best weekend to start looking for some bargain deals.
When is Black Friday 2017?
Black Friday is on November 24 2017, while Cyber Monday is November 27 2017.
In case you’re looking ahead, Black Friday 2018 falls on November 23, and Black Friday 2019 will fall on November 29.
