Next’s Black Friday and Boxing Day sales have been known to be very popular, with queues of shoppers looking to get a bargain winding down the street.
The British brand is a staple store, known for good quality womenswear, menswear, kidswear and even homeware – so it’s no surprise that people look forward to its sales all the time. You can get it all from Next and it’s affordable too.
During their sales, they’re been known to be very generous with discounts in the past – so much so that the queues begin forming as early as 6am.
Of course, now you can simply shop the Black Friday sales online from the comfort of your own sofa (or bed – we don’t judge) so there’s no need to wake up at the crack of dawn to get a good deal.
So what’s actually in store for us during this year’s Black Friday and when can we snap up these deals?
Here are all the details you need to know. We’re regularly updating this article, so check back for more information.

When is the Next Black Friday sale?
So, here’s a bit of bad news. It looks like there won’t be a Next Black Friday sale this year.
The brand opted out of the sale event for the last two years without divulging the reason, however it’s presumably because of the push towards sustainability that’s leading to many brands dipping out of the shopping season.
There are however many other brands taking part this season. Read more about them here.
How big are the discounts at the Next Black Friday sale?
I can see why some people would line up during the brand’s sales, because Next slashes up to a whopping 70% off different items — from womenswear to home goods.
As well as Next’s own brand pieces, it stocks so many great brands including Superga, Mint Velvet, Reiss and more.
Time will tell if we’ll see that big a discount again, but the good news is there are so many cute items in the brand’s clearance section right now. Check them out here.
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.
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.
