We’ve all been reading about how Black Friday offers aren’t all they’ve cracked up to be as unscrupulous national chains play the system with a discount here, a bit of money off in one store and a projected saving across the whole business. However, there are still bargains to be had on Black Friday. As ever, it’s our stalwart gang of independent businesses who are offering real value. Here is a round up of deals I’ve found from Leicester businesses. They’ve all been created especially for Black Friday to tempt you to shop small and support your local economy.
The bulk of these offers are available for one day only – 23/11/18. Know of any others? Drop me a nudge in the comments below.
