Once again, the time has come for percentage promotions, discounted deals and super savings from all your favourite Foyleside Shopping Centre retailers, as the biggest shopping day of the year – Black Friday – returns! 

Across the water our American cousins would gather around the table and celebrate Thanksgiving with their family and friends. The next day would bring large crowds of shoppers to their favourite stores to grab a Black Friday bargain, especially with Christmas being just around the corner.  

It did not take long for this shopping phenomenon to spread to the rest of the world and now Black Friday is a highly anticipated date circled in many shoppers’ calendars; and this year will be no different with plenty to get excited about and to celebrate. 

Foyleside will be running an event in the centre on Friday, 25th November beginning at 1pm with fantastic Black Friday Gift Cards up for grabs. 

Everyone is welcome to take part, and the rules could not be simpler: 

  • Little black boxes will be hidden around the centre 
  • These will contain a token to be redeemed at Customer Services 
  • Total value of Foyleside Black Friday Gift Cards is £300 pounds
  • Boxes will be hidden throughout the duration of the event
  • Announcements will be made over the PA system & social media platforms when boxes are hidden 

The event will be hosted by local personality Micky Doherty, who will be encouraging all our shopaholics to participate, while keeping our amateur detectives on their toes with a madcap mixture of announcements, clues, and craic. 

Fergal Rafferty, Foyleside Centre Manager says he is delighted the pre-Christmas buzz is back in the centre: “It is great to see so many exciting things happening at Foyleside at the moment. Our Black Friday event is one the shoppers look forward to throughout the year and it gives them a great head start on the festive season with December fast approaching. 

“Speaking of Christmas, Santa has already arrived at the centre and many people are trying to get their Christmas shopping wrapped up early. You can certainly feel the magic in the air with Christmas shoppers in the centre, and this will only increase in the coming weeks.  

“This Black Friday we are so excited to be able to provide a number of Foyleside Gift Cards for the Finders Keepers event. Everyone who visits the centre should keep their eyes open, listen to the clues from our amazing MC Micky Doherty and hopefully get their hands on one!”
