Does Arket take part in Black Friday?
The Scandi brand, which offers chic and simple pieces, doesn’t come cheap, so if you’ve been holding off from buying an item on your wish list, you might be able to reap the benefits in November.

Arket has grown quite a following amongst those who love the brand’s simple style and also favour sustainable fashion.
Arket positions itself as a lifestyle brand that wants to ‘inspire people to live a more sustainable lifestyle,’ encouraging shoppers to shop smarter, not harder and to invest in long-lasting and versatile pieces.
H&M’s sister brand may offer its pieces at a higher price point than its more popular sibling, but it does make up for it in quality.
The materials are sturdier, the quality is better — the pieces feel a bit like a small investment than a fast fashion purchase.
Of course, we all love a bargain – and if I can get good quality at a discounted price, I will jump at the chance.
For those looking to do the same, here’s what we know so far about Arket’s Black Friday sale this year – from when it’s starting, to how much you can expect to save.

When is the Arket Black Friday sale in 2022?
Black Friday takes place on the last Friday of November each year. In 2022, that falls on 25 November.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Arket didn’t join last year’s shopping event. It skipped the shopping holiday for sustainability reasons, opting instead to offer discounts during the Boxing Day and January sales.
They do however offer 10% off your first order and as they say every little helps!
In 2019, it held ‘colour week.’ For this event, Arket opted instead to arrange discounts by colour and offer daily deals throughout the week of Black Friday.
They didn’t offer the same in 2021 or this year unfortunately. We’ll be keeping you updated right here if there are any updates on this.
How big is the Arket Black Friday sale?
In previous years, Arket has offered 20% off during Black Friday week and this increased even further after Christmas.
Arket offers many items, particularly its coats and boots, at up to 50% off during this time — perfect for stocking up for the season.
While the brand may opt out of Black Friday, keep your eyes peeled around Christmas as this could be when you get the pieces you’ve been lusting after all season.
Does Arket take part in Cyber Monday?
It’s unclear whether Arket will offer discounts for Black Friday or Cyber Monday this year, but we’ll update you as soon as we find out more.

Wear Next opinion
As consumers are becoming savvier to the impact of overconsumption on our environment and the individuals working to produce garments, many brands have decided to boycott Black Friday this year.
We’re expecting this to include brands Monki and Next, both of which opted out of Black Friday in 2020.
While we don’t condone overspending, we do want fashion to be accessible to those on a low budget, as well as those who struggle to shop sustainably due to size constraints.
We love fashion and the freedom of self-expression it brings and understand you’re going to want to shop the sales. We encourage you to be mindful of your spending and avoid buying items you’re probably going to discard of in a year’s time.
Shop smarter, not harder, this Black Friday. Ensure you’re not overspending by setting yourself a budget beforehand and creating a wish list of items you actually need rather than want – including Christmas gifts for others – if you are going to spend.
