Am not gooin ter beat abaht t’bush. I bleddeh ‘ate Black Friday! Don’t get me wrong, there are some wonderful things ter come aht of America, (pancakes, eagles, Nirvana) but starting Christmas retail in September (why???) and Black Friday Should have no place in UK shops. I’ll let yer into a few secrets. You are NOT gerrin a bargain telleh, when yer queue up ahtside Tesco at 6am, they’re all old stock, that they put the price up in the weeks before, so it looks like you’re gerrin more for yer munneh.

I was walkin dahn Beeston high rd tiday, an’ the Card Zone ‘ad a sign in the winder, sayin ‘Huge Black Friday Deals’ What the duck is a card shop, in a sleepy suburb of Nottingham, doin’ bleddeh Black Friday sales for?? Black Friday was a gimmick, setup by Wal-Mart, as an excuse for people to spend even more money after their Thanksgiving celebrations. It’s got bogger all ter do with owt ovver ere! In fact Wal-Mart refused ter even participate last yeeyer, an they started the bleddeh thing!!! It meks me so bleddeh angry…

A tell her what. Instead of queuin ter buy a 900 inch, 4k, HD, smellovision, super duper pile of rammel,  that yer don’t even need, why not donate some food ter Hope House food bank instead. 

If you are an independent business, I URGE you ter bleddeh boycott Quack Friday, and stop all this silliness, before it gets aht of hand! Support your local independent businesses, be it greengrocer, giftshop, barbers or shoeshop. Shop local this Chrissmus, and don’t fall into the Black Friday trap – it’s just for gullible people. 

2nd December is Small Business Saturday, and it’s also Dukki’s 3rd Birthday.  So come along and see us, and pledge to support local businesses this Chrissmus. We wholeheartedly support the #justacard scheme, which encourages even small purchases from independent businesses. Every little helps, (even if it is a slogan for Tesco!) 

 Don’t head aht on Friday, hoping ter secure a special deal on a piece of tat. Head to your local indie shops, and help them survive the dog eat dog world, that is being a small business. They need your help, more than Asda needs you ter buy an Xbox. 

When yer doin yer Chrissmuss shoppin ovver the next few weeks, remember, our highstreets are full of independent shops, tucked away because they can’t afford the main drag, so go lookin forrum, yer never know what yer might find, burrit sure as ‘ell won’t be some BOGOF made in wherever rammel that the chain stores sell! Think differentleh, don’t be a sheep, buy handmade, buy local, and most of all, tell Black Friday ter do one!
