Parcel2Go has reminded shoppers looking for great deals on their
Christmas presents this year to remember to capitalise on Black Friday
on November 25.
The annual event, which marks the start of the Christmas shopping rush in America,
is designed to inspire US consumers and get the tills ringing at the start of the
festive season. But thanks to the internet, next week's shopping bonanza won't be
restricted to people living in the United States.
Amazon UK is one retailer that is joining in to bring British shoppers deals on a
range of goods from books and music to fashion and beauty products, and Parcel2Go
has reminded people not to miss out. Amazon will be offering timed deals between
Monday, November 21 and Black Friday on the 25th.
Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said: "Black Friday might have
begun as a US tradition but deal-conscious shoppers from the UK now have the chance
to beat the Christmas rush and grab themselves a few bargains.
"Online shopping has completely revolutionised the way people buy presents at
Christmas and as long as people make sure that their gifts are being shipped with
leading couriers then buying online is a great way to avoid the queues at the tills.
There are sure to be plenty of Black Friday deals to be had next week and by
choosing to send presents to friends and relatives using Parcel2Go, shoppers will be
able to save even more money."
Anyone thinking of ordering goods from American businesses on Black Friday might
find that some retailers will only ship to US addresses. Parcel2Go offers customers
the opportunity to rent an American address and have goods forwarded to Europe with
professional couriers such as DHL and FedEx, so
buying direct from the US is no problem at all.
Richard added: "The US address rental service has become incredibly popular and
we'd expect to see an increase in demand from European consumers as Black Friday
