Amazon recently announced its American customers would get an additional seven days of great deals in relation to this year’s Black Friday. The UK branch of the business is also set on giving its customers something extra. From today up until Friday British Amazon customers will be able to enjoy more than 7 000 deals, according to Amazon.
- Customers love Black Friday. Last year, it was so popular that for the first time in our history, we received orders for over 5.5 million items in one day. This year, we have more than 20 times the number of deals we had in 2010 when we first introduced Black Friday to the UK and we’re expecting record numbers of customers to take advantage, said Christopher North, Managing Director, Amazon.co.uk.
New Fulfilment Centres
The deals of the week include offers on everything from champagne to rowing machines, and during the week Amazon will present Deals of the Day, as well as new deals every ten minutes.
Amazon is expecting its busiest Black Friday ever, and has over the year prepared by investing in two new fulfilment centres in the UK. Amazon now has more than 10,000 permanent employees in the UK.
