    BRITS TO SPEND MOST ONLINE

    For the first time, Britons will spend more online this Christmas than in the high street thanks to the lockdown of non-essential stores.

    Internet retailers, including Amazon and eBay, have taken advantage of the situation by running Black Friday deals for weeks.

    A study by the Centre for Retail Research estimates spending at online stores over the three days will hit £5.75billion – up by 53 per cent on the £3.77billion for the Black Friday weekend last year.

    The Shopping for Christmas study, commissioned by Vouchercodes.co.uk, predicts online spending will peak on Black Friday itself when £1.34million will be spent every minute.

    Because much of the high street is closed, the report predicts that spending in bricks-and-mortar shops over the weekend will be down by 63.7 per cent on last year, from £4.79billion to £1.74billion.

    The figures suggest that the total spent this weekend online and on the high street could be £7.5billion.

    HOW LONG DOES BLACK FRIDAY LAST?

    Strictly speaking, Black Friday is just one day.

    But since the trend took off there are many shops that extend their Black Friday sales for a few days either side and with some, it's even weeks.

    That means Black Friday often starts earlier and that you'll start spotting deals ahead of this year's Black Friday on November 27.

    The Monday after Black Friday is called Cyber Monday and that's when lots of online deals launched, whereas Black Friday was originally focused on in store promotions.
