Black Friday is fast approaching and it’s the perfect time to buy far more, for far less – and fill up those Christmas stockings in the process.
Clapham Junction is the ideal destination location for Black Friday shopping, boasting a wealth of high street names and rich mix of small independents and little gems – all perfectly complimented by a plethora of hospitality and health and beauty venues for a little ‘down time’ from all that retail rummaging. Don’t forget, by shopping local you’ll be supporting your local economy and you’re likely to find more unique and tailored offerings.
With so many discounts, deals and offers to be had, navigating your way through Black Friday can prove a little daunting. So here are five top tips get you ahead of the crowds…
1. CREATE YOUR SHOPPING LIST
It may be the TV you’ve always dreamed of, or everything on your child’s ‘Letter to Santa’. Whatever it is, preparing a list will help you plan ahead and find the right stores in advance, saving those feet an unnecessary journey.
2. DO YOUR RESEARCH
Get ahead of the masses and do your research to find the best deal. If you know what you’re looking for, compare prices in your local stores – it may even be worth asking your local retailer if they'll price match something you’ve found online.
3. SHOP EARLY
After doing all that Black Friday homework, make sure you snap up the deal before it’s sold out! Black Friday is no longer just one day – it’s already underway and, with Cyber Monday around the corner, it’ll soon be over. So, avoid the crowds and head down to Clapham Junction today.
4. SEEK THE UNIQUE
The Junction is home to a fantastic selection of independents which have direct control over the products they source and the services they provide. If you’re buying gifts for Christmas, this could be your chance to pick up a truly unique deal. From toys, games, books and treats, to fashion, accessories, beauty products and electrical items, you're sure to find something a little different.
5. DON’T SHOP ‘TIL YOU DROP
Shopping for a bargain can be hard work, but there’s no reason not to enjoy it. Why not make it a day out with a friend or loved one and plan in a lunchtime treat at one of Clapham Junction’s amazing eateries, a cheeky tipple at the end of the day in one of The Junction’s enviable selection of pubs and bars, or a touch of pampering at one of the fabulous health and beauty venues within the Junction locale.
While you're snapping up those bargains, or having a downtime munch, we've organised some fun, friendly characters for you to meet at The Junction. Come down and meet the Bouncing Elves on Stilts (!) and the giant Illuminated Lanterns on Saturday 26th. While on Sunday, 27th – listen to some melodious opera from the Bluebelles and be amazed by our mad Magician roaming the streets on his Penny Farthing – enjoy!
