BBC World News – Martin Newman on Black Friday

25th November 2015

Martin was invited onto BBC World News to discuss the growing phenomenon of Black Friday, and what it means for UK retailers.



Black Friday is a relatively new player in the shopping world, coming up behind Chinese Singles’ Day and Indian Diwali as a nationwide event. Traditionally the first Friday after the American Thanksgiving, Black Friday normally heralds price cuts and savings for shoppers as the influx of spending pushes businesses into profit for the first time in the year.


Martin discusses the repercussions of Black Friday in the UK market; whether the revenue collected is worth the extra effort of buying in to Black Friday, or whether it’s incremental in the run up to Christmas.
