The US custom is very much a fixture in the UK calendar now but which stores in Milton Keynes are taking part in this year’s Black Friday sales on November 24th?

Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving in the US and is regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in America.

A PWC report from last year showed 27% of Brits planned to buy something on Black Friday or Cyber Monday last year.

The shopping craze started in the UK in 2013 with US-owned Asda (Wallmart) and hit national headlines with chaos in shops as shoppers battled for goods.
