The Splurger

Black Friday shoppers

Slightly manic and always impulsive, the Splurger isn’t necessarily planning on buying anything on Black Friday – but then spends their entire paycheck in twenty minutes. Unable to resist a bargain and a sucker for anything pretty, the Splurger’s Black Friday haul will be undeniably drool-worthy. #Jealous.


The Planner

The Impulse Buyer

Similar to the Splurger, but with a more erractic attitude to spending, the Impulse Buyer will come away from Black Friday with a whole host of nonsense that they didn’t really want in the first place. Did they really need a new blender,  DVD player and lawn-mower? Probably not, but they’ll be arriving in 3-5 business days.


The One Who Forgot

“Why are the shops so busy today?”, they’ll wonder, unable to get a space in the multi-storey carpark. There’s always someone who forgets it’s Black Friday but gets caught up in the fray anyway, so perhaps it’s time to gently remind the more forgetful among your friends…


The Reluctant Browser

Often dragged along to the shops with a significant other or family member, the Reluctant Browser isn’t really a fan of shopping, but has to admit the Black Friday deals are piquing their interest. However, they’d much rather be anywhere else, and make their displeasure very much known at this impromptu shopping spree.
