B&M usually drops some amazing offers for Black Friday, but unfortunately it’s not taking part in 2020.
In previous years, shoppers have been able to get bargains on toys and tech.
When is Black Friday 2020?
Black Friday is on Friday 27 November, but many Black Friday discounts are available before and after this date.
Many shops stretching the deals and discounts over several days and even weeks sometimes.
Black Friday is always towards the end of November and is the day after the American Thanksgiving holiday, which is always on the fourth Thursday of November.
What to expect from B&M’s Black Friday 2020 sale
B&M told The Sun it is NOT participating in Black Friday this year, although it hasn’t yet said why.
Either way, this means there won’t be any specific deals available for this event but that doesn’t mean shoppers will miss out.
The retailer is already known for offering cheap deals on popular brands across items ranging from food and homeware to toys.
Last month, for example, B&M launched a toy sale with up to 75% off brands including Lego and Paw Patrol.
And last week, it rolled out a Christmas range to rival John Lewis for half the price.
To find out what kind of deals it currently has, check out B&M’s website.
Just be aware you can’t buy online and the retailer is unlikely to have all of its products listed on its website, so it’s worth popping by your local shop for the full range.
B&M has more than 600 stores across the UK. You can find your nearest one using its store locator tool.
