Will Marks & Spencer hold a Black Friday sale in 2021?
The brand has been a staple in so many people’s wardrobes for years now because of its affordability and classic designs. When these pieces get discounted, well, that’s truly a deal that’s hard to resist.
But what really is in store for us during the Marks & Spencer Black Friday sale in 2021 and is it something that you should watch out for?
I did the digging, and here’s what I found.
When is the Marks & Spencer Black Friday sale?
The bad news is M&S stopped joining the shopping event in 2017. In a conference speech, the brand’s CEO Steve Rowe said, ‘We didn’t do it last year either. When we did do it, we found it sucked sales forward. Customers are more interested in different types of technology, like TVs, which we don’t sell.’
The good news is even though the brand has not officially taken part in the sale event, it does still offer deals during that time of the year — during Cyber weekend, to be exact.
In case you didn’t know, Black Friday is held during the last Friday of November. Meanwhile, Cyber weekend is the weekend right after Black Friday.
We have to keep an eye out on the brand’s plans for this year, though, because it held different sales events for different categories in November last year.
How big are the Marks & Spencer Black Friday deals?
The discounts vary depending on the category, but they usually go up to 30%. Select womenswear often gets 30% off while beauty products get 20% off. If you happen to be a fan of its wine selection, you may also get a chance to snag a bottle with a 30% discount.
Aside from these sales, the brand holds pocket sale events every now and then too. It actually has one running right now! I took a look at what’s in the sale selection and found things you may want to get.
