Re: White Friday, Black Friday

Actually, we are having a White Friday.
An hour long hailstorm has left everywhere White, and it's very cold too, just 4ºC

Britain is set for one of the coldest November weekends on record at -11C as icy North Pole air plunges across the country TONIGHT

Re: White Friday, Black Friday

I didn't see such a low temperature here, but the Bird Baths have been frozen over since this morning, so it must have been cold.
Until we poured some warm water into them at Lunchtime.

So close
We went down to 0.2ºC at around 10pm, but back up to 1.3ºC at 11:15pm
No Snow, perhaps it's too cold for Snow now.

I didn't see it (i was asleep) but apparently it snowed here in the morning! It didn't settle though.
One things for sure, it was freezing cold out there today - absolutely horrible!

Re: White Friday, Black Friday

Just spoke to our House Sitters, apparently shoppers were going crazy in Aldi today (Thursday) for a 48" TV  £300
It seems most of the people who were in the queue at 8am bought the TV !!!
But no fights, all very gentile.
It was a promoted item, so presumably lots of Stock.

Re: White Friday, Black Friday

BBC watchdog were keep to point out tonight that BlackFriday may simply be BlagFriday for shoppers with retailers pulling their usual stunts to get the punters in.
Be careful out there people... you might not really be getting a bargain at all.

Re: White Friday, Black Friday

Just don't try getting petrol at ASDA
Quote
Supermarket Asda is dropping the price of unleaded petrol on Friday - despite saying it would not take part in the Black Friday discount day.
It is knocking four pence off a litre of fuel across its 277 petrol stations for three days, and drivers can expect to pay 99.7ppl on unleaded and 103.7ppl on diesel.
The price cut takes the cost of a litre of unleaded petrol below £1 for the first time since 2009.
On Monday, Asda will revert back to its original price of 103.7p on unleaded and 106.7 ppl on diesel.

Re: White Friday, Black Friday

Some people will drive miles to get this bargain price petrol but by the time you look at the savings made against the normal price plus your time how much have you really saved ?
As to companies selling goods at lower prices, are they not just clearing old stock from the shelves ?
