Get ready to make some serious savings…

What is Black Friday?

An American tradition, Black Friday occurs every year on the Friday after the US celebrates Thanksgiving. In recent years the sale concept has spread to other countries, and usually means that retailers drop their prices, offering huge discounts on a range of items. This year, Black Friday falls on Friday November 29, and Dubai is getting involved in the action. Over the next few weeks online stores and shopping malls will announce special savings for customers for Black Friday, which may only last 24 hours or up to the whole month of November.
