Black Friday will take place on 25 November this year. Imported from the United States, the UK is bracing itself yet again for another shopping spree.

Retailers are set to slash prices to kick-start the Christmas shopping season. Tesco, Argos and Currys have already gone live with huge Black Friday promotions.

Last year, UK shoppers cracked the £1bn sales mark for the first time ever and experts are predicting a similar result this year. Twenty-seven per cent of adults across the country are expected to purchase over the weekend period.

Asda has banned Black Friday for a second year in a row, amid fears of in-store violence. Ironically the company, owned by US retail giant, Walmart famously brought the Black Friday to the attention of British retailers.

Such fears haven't yet affected other retailers' plans however.
