Black Friday – the day after thanksgiving.

In the US, thanksgiving is a big family holiday, a bit like christmas day is traditionally here in the UK. It is on the 4th Thursday of November and it falls on the 25 November this year.

In recent years the following day has been branded Black Friday and is reportedly the highest spending day of the year and marks the start of the big retail bonanza leading up to christmas.

Whether it is a good thing or not it appears to be taking a hold in the UK too with a good number of retailers starting to market the Black Friday brand and promoting sale goods and discounts.

Amazon and other big names Amazon brings Black Friday deals to the UK have been promoting it.

What other UK retailer have jumped on the bandwagon and should it adopted wholesale and applauded?
