It seems that UK stores were not prepared for Black Friday as Social media reports UK Stores Crashing. Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales have been being advertised on Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites for weeks now, its a shame that these stores didn’t prepare themselves for the results of those promotions.
Big stores such as Game, Argos, Tesco, Currys to name a few are all over loaded with people trying to buy bargains on their sites causing sites to crash during the Black Friday Sales. It seems us Brits love a bargain, with fight braking out in stores, and websites crashing just to get few pounds discount on items.
Tesco direct have a landing page up – just asking you to try again
Currys too have a message saying
We’re really sorry that the huge demand for our deals means you’re having to wait.
We really appreciate your patience and we’ll have you on our site as soon as possible.
Argos – have been tweeting about the problem on their own site, due to a high volume of visitors
Game – who do have some great deals on xbox playstation and many more for Black Friday, say they have been overwhelmed with visitors
