As an antidote to 'Black Friday', Barretts is running 'Give Back Friday', donating 10% of on-line sales to charity!
Whilst the American import 'Black Friday' has become part of our shopping culture, we at Barretts simply don't like! We feel it appeals to the greedy side of human nature, plus according to Which?, there are many reported scams operating under the 'Black Friday' facade.
In previous years we've run the 'Wonderfull Woodbridge Friday' campaign, to encourage local shopping and tell everyone about our super town.
Being closed to the public, we obviously can't do it this year, so instead we'll running 'Give Back Friday'.
We will donate 10% of all our On-line and Click & Collect sales up to midnight today (Friday 27th), to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
We've chosen this charity because it's a first rate cause, and the charity has suffered due to the lockdown restrictions limiting their annual campaign. We really missed having our usual collection tin in the store this year.
Don't forget we still have our 'Lockdown Sale', so you can still bag a genuine bargain!
