As we prepare for Black Friday 2019, what are the potential deals and discounts on offer from high street giant Marks & Spencer? We did some digging to find out what could be in store…
Earlier this year, Marks & Spencer suffered a setback in sales – which retail boss Steve Row claimed was due to the “combination of reducing consumer confidence, mild weather, Black Friday, and widespread discounting by our competitors [that] made November a very challenging trading period.”
Given the setbacks from last year, can we anticipate some more competitive sales from Marks & Spencer this Black Friday, on November 29?
The company is remaining tight-lipped over what could be in store. “We aim to give our customers great trusted value throughout the whole Christmas season, not just over the Black Friday weekend,” says Nathan Ansell, M&S’s Clothing & Home Marketing Director.
Yet no matter how many times Marks & Spencer insists it doesn’t do Black Friday (in 2017 they claimed they wouldn’t be “buying into the retail bonanza”), there are still some serious deals to be found at the store during the November sales period.
Given their inventory, the retailer won’t be battling to serve the best Black Friday tech deals. Instead, we predict offers on some of their iconic stock – from cashmere jumpers to beauty products and bed linen.
