Business, Culture, LifeStyle, London, shopping
Black Friday conjures up images of hordes of customers pushing through shop doors to fight for bargains.

I guess that’s why this year there are less people here compared to last year. Last year was slightly busier because Black Friday is a little newer then.” Trick or Treat
