Black Friday – Sorry, It’s Not For Us This Year

We’ve decided not to take part in Black Friday this year. We – like most small companies – aren’t able to match the level of discounts that many high street and online retailers offer on Black Friday.

As now much a part of the American Thanksgiving tradition as a turkey dinner, Black Friday has grown in popularity over the past few years. But we’re not taking part and here’s why.

There are a number of little reasons for this decision but it’s mainly twofold:

1. Price

We work to tight margins in a very competitive market place, already packed with discounters racing to the lowest possible price – often selling their wares with free delivery for less than we pay for our insured courier service!

We simply couldn’t stay in business if we drastically cut our prices. Instead we try to build our customer offering by delivering great value, all year round, rather than on just one day of the year.

2. Quality

Our products are crafted with care, attention to detail and we think they’re a fantastic addition to your space. So we think that to cheapen them by halving their price seems counter-intuitive.

We wouldn’t benefit from selling our products for half their value and although some shoppers love the attraction in alleged lower prices, we wouldn’t even consider reducing the quality of our products in turn.

Hopefully, this helps explain our thinking and that you’ll understand that as a small business, it’s a fight every day to survive and we cherish every order we receive.

For any enquiries, please feel free to get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.
