BLACK Friday is fast approaching, and if you are planning on bagging some bargains in Glasgow on November 26, here is what you need to know. 

Braehead Shopping Centre is opening two hours early on Friday, at 8am instead of 10am.

If you are looking for deals on electronics, Currys in the Braehead Retail Park is also opening early at 8am.

While Black Friday is set to be a busy shopping day, many shops have already started slashing prices and will continue sales for the rest of the month.

Braehead Centre Director, Peter Beagley said: “Shoppers recognise that there are some fantastic offers on during Black Friday and beyond. This is encouraging them to get into top gear for their Christmas shopping.

“Fears of supply chain issues and a desire to beat the rush has meant shoppers are coming out early to do their Christmas shopping to make sure they get the gifts they really want for family and friends.”

Shoppers can enjoy 60 per cent off fashion at Joules, up to 50 per cent off jewellery stores Beaverbrooks and Thomas Sabo and up to 50 per cent off Unique Clinics treatments.

Kids Cavern and Kiddie Boutique are offering up to 40 per cent reductions, while H. Samuel say they have offers that are better than half price.

Peter added: “We’re hearing that big ticket items like jewellery and watches are doing well this year and our new luxury concept Goldsmiths store had an exceptional first weekend since they opened last week.
