Today is Black Friday and theres no escaping it, wherever you are in the world. Originally an American idea which was given to the shopping day after thanksgiving and given its name because of the surge of shoppers on this day, it has now caught on all over the world and Lanzarote is no exception! Its thought that many people used to call in sick from work the day after thanksgiving so that they could have a 4 day break and use the day for their Christmas shopping
It seems as the years go by the offers are not just limited to this day with shops advertising their Black Friday offers up to a week beforehand. The commercial centres on the island are geared up for this Friday and have finished decorating in preparation for the Christmas rush. The Biosfera shopping centre in Puerto del Carmen will be the most popular amongst tourists as it is easy to get to for holidaymakers staying in this resort.
