Black Friday 2016 at your local tack shop
Of course the other option, that we would always support, is to shop local. A lot of local tack shops will be getting into the spirit of things with discounts of their own so why not pop by? While these Black Friday equestrian deals might not always be at the levels on offer by the big online retailers, it does give you the opportunity to support a local business and take advantage of the fitting service and expertise that you can’t get from retailers located on the other side of a computer screen.
For example, The Tack Room at Eastwick Lodge, Harlow in Essex is going to be offering 10% off everything in store on Black Friday from 9am til 6pm.
Also Keysoe Boutique at The College EC, Keysoe, Beds has discounts of up to 40% on offer in store on Friday and over the weekend.
What is Black Friday?
For consumers and retailers in the UK, Black Friday is a recent phenomenon, but it has been going strong the United States for decades.
Black Friday is the first Friday after Thanksgiving and is traditionally seen as the start of the Christmas shopping season, with high street retailers opening their doors at the crack of dawn and offering big discounts for shoppers who have set their alarm clocks.
The rise of internet shopping has allowed the Black Friday tradition to spread throughout the world, and it hasn’t passed the equestrian world by either. From your local tack shop to massive online retailers, there will be great discounts to be had.
When is Black Friday 2016?
