Originally conceived in the United States, Black Friday has grown to become a shopping event right here in the UK.
Less than a month before Christmas, the shopping day is traditionally a bargain hunter’s dream come true. Recent years have seen hordes of shoppers crushing into supermarkets and department stores, racing to get their hands on a hot new gadget or flatscreen TV.
