The tradition of the Black Friday sales has continued to gain ground in Ireland since we first heard of it roughly 5 years ago. Many people see it as the start of their Christmas shopping while others avoid it like the plague!  But like it or loathe it, there is no doubt that there are fantastic bargains to be had for those who brave the stores.

Here in Merchants Quay most of our retailers will have discounts, special offers and limited stock bargains on offer. We’ll be announcing them all on the evening of Wednesday 27th November by way of our newsletter so make sure to be signed up to receive your copy into your Inbox to be armed with all the relevant information!  We promise we won’t bombard you with emails – our newsletters usually go out only once a month unless we have a new store to announce or a special event to tell you about.

What will you be looking out for?  Will it be new Christmas tableware, decorations, something glittery to wear to the Christmas party, new boots, a good coat, gift sets (always handy), super Christmasssy kidswear, mens knitwear, jackets, socks and jocks, phones, tablets and covers, perfume and after shave, lovely lacy lingerie, cosy loungewear, festive PJs, super cosy slippers, socks or maybe that perfect handbag? Whatever it is, you’re sure to find it and at a price you weren’t expecting!

Come and soak up the Christmassy atmosphere in Merchants Quay and throughout the city where every street will be glittering with Christmas lights.  It will be a fabulous day out for savvy shoppers who have booked the day off work or made plans with friends to shop, dine and really get into the festive spirit.

Put the date in your diary and come into Cork city for Black Friday this year.
