Of Course British Black Friday Is Incredibly Polite

Black Friday in the U.S. is often characterized as a chaotic and sometimes sadly violent rush to bag as many bargains from inside a store as possible. Similar scenes of frenzied shoppers fighting over limited discounted items played out in the United Kingdom when its stores latched onto the trend in 2014. This year, however, it appears that Britain’s Black Friday participants are taking a decidedly more chilled out approach to getting a good deal. Photographs taken by the Press Association on Friday show no early long lines outside stores, no scrums over marked down products and no violent altercations. It actually looked like the shoppers were having an enjoyable experience. Of course, these photographs only document the calm scenes at a select number of stores in Manchester and London and there may well have been busier scenes at other retail outlets. But they seem to be representative of what was happening elsewhere across the country. ITV News referred to the shopping day as “Slack Friday,” and the Guardian noted that many people were instead choosing to either take advantage of the deals online or wait until Cyber Monday for further discounts. Deals have also been available via other retailers in the days leading up to actual Black Friday.

Tesco chief warns brands not to make UK shoppers pay for weak pound

Dave Lewis says he accepts inflation is starting to raise prices but vows to fight unjustified hikes based only on currency fluctuationsThe chief executive of Tesco has fired a fresh warning shot at multinational consumer brand owners, such as Marmite’s parent company Unilever, by asking them not to push currency-related price hikes on to British shoppers. In his first comments since last month’s “Marmitegate” stand-off, Dave Lewis said consumers should not be asked to pay “inflated prices” due to fluctuations in currencies, such as the post-referendum slump in the pound.

The Marmite row is the first sign of the true cost of Brexit for food producers

The result of the Brexit-inspired falling pound is that we are, and will continue to be, at the mercy of increasingly expensive importsLast month, Marmite managed to leave a nasty taste in the mouth for even those of us who like it. Unilever’s attempt to increase the price, allegedly in response to rising costs as a result of a Brexit-inspired falling pound, was fought off by plucky old Tesco. Critics pointed out that Unilever had also benefited from the falling pound because it exported so many of its products. The company backed down and Tesco won the day. Hurrah. The diehard Brexiteers were able to claim that the portents of doom around our leaving the EU were misplaced. It was buttered toast all round.Except the Unilever story has managed to obscure the reality, which is this: when it comes to food, Brexit has utterly screwed us all. I ran into a friend recently who runs a food import and restaurant business. They spend more than £10m a year on produce, purchased in euros. Because of the falling pound their costs have gone up by 20%. They have to find an extra £2m just to stand still. I spoke to a man in the steakhouse business, who imports beef from the US. It was chaos, he said. The falling pound against the dollar had decimated the business. Continue reading...
