Will Black Friday / Cyber Monday become the new Boxing Day?

Will Black Friday / Cyber Monday become the new Boxing Day Sale?

Black Friday – the retail sales that occur on the Friday after Thanksgiving—used to be an American tradition, until now. This year, the day of sales arrived in the UK.

UK based internet searches for “Black Friday” were up by 355% in 2013 and look to be even higher this year. This ever increasing online popularity of Black Friday has led to a large number of online retailers in the UK offering Black Friday deals. Last year, so many retailers ran promotions that 72% of the UK population said they know about the Black Friday sales.

If Black Friday continues to become more popular in the UK it’s possible it could overtake Boxing Day and be the biggest sales day in the UK. Plusnet looks into how possible this may be.
