With origins in the United States, Black Friday takes place on the day after Thanksgiving and is considered to mark the start of the Christmas shopping period.
Recent years have seen UK retailers embracing the concept, offering discounts and promotions to rival their transatlantic colleagues, and British shoppers have come to expect a bumper shopping day of bargains and bonuses.
Predictions are that British shoppers will spend £2.3m a minute this Black Friday – a 19pc increase on last year.
Some 14 million British consumers are expected to participate in the global shopping event and will spend a predicted total of £1.96bn.
Full details of how to enter the Black Friday Giveaway will be revealed in Thursday’s Evening News.
