Black Friday deals in Herefordshire 2017: What to get and where to get it

First up, there are three things you should know about Black Friday:

  1. It makes no sense in England. None. It exists because in America everyone has the day off after Thanksgiving giving them plenty of time to fight over Playstations. It's their Boxing Day.
  2. A consumer survey found that more than half of the products featured last year were in fact available at the same price or cheaper at other times during the year (even as soon as Cyber Monday, in some cases).
  3. Lidl are in for the first time ever.

So with that said, here you go. Here’s the best Black Friday deals in Herefordshire, in alphabetical order.
