Every year ‘Black Friday’ grows in popularity as the American inspired phenomenon takes over the UK offering huge discounts and special offers from the biggest names in retail. On Friday 28 November, generous discounts will be available from stores across intu Milton Keynes throughout the day.
To celebrate, the intu group is hosting a variety of activities in centres nationwide; intu Milton Keynes is holding its first ever Black Friday Christmas Market which will be in the Shopping Centre from Friday 28 until Sunday 30 November.
This new and exciting market offers Christmas shoppers plentiful gift ideas and treats; there will be delicious cupcakes, locally produced food and drink, Christmas decorations, home accessories, vintage bric-a-brac, antiques and more. To warm things up, there is an Afro-Caribbean food market offering delicious tasters and recipe ideas with a kick.
Black Friday offers will be displayed on giant walls, which will be kept live with new offers being put up as they are announced. The offers will also be posted on the intu Milton Keynes website and social media channels.
This crucial Christmas shopping weekend wouldn’t be complete without the annual gift wrap service. This year, coordinated by the Cornerstone Christmas Appeal, volunteers from several local charities are taking it in turns to wrap presents in return for a donation to their charity. The gift wrap station will be located on the south concourse (opposite Caff? Italia) and will be open from 11am – 5pm from Friday 28 until Sunday 30 November. It will be available again 11am – 5pm over the weekend of 6 and 7 December, and then daily from Saturday 13 December until Christmas Eve.

The person crowned champion will receive £200 worth of prizes including an intu gift card and Monopoly goodies. To enter, contestants must e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
