YOU can always count on NEXT for good quality womenswear, workwear, menswear, kids clothes, and beautiful homeware.
Its notorious sales have people queuing from as early as 6am, but Next’s Black Friday 2020 deals are a little different this year.
The retailer has decided NOT to take part in the sales bonanza in 2020 in a blow for bargain hunters.
The clothing and homeware store confirmed to HOAR there will be no Black Friday event, but it wouldn’t reveal the reason why it won’t be participating this year.
When is Next’s 2020 Black Friday sale?
Black Friday lands on Friday November 27 in 2020.
It’s always the day after the US holiday of Thanksgiving which takes place on the fourth Thursday in November.
That means the date of Black Friday changes each year but it’s generally always towards the end of November.
But this will now just be a normal day for the store as it’s not doing any Black Friday deals this year.
What was in Next’s Black Friday sale last year?

- Ecru One shoulder Ruffle Top, £8 (save £20)

- River Island Navy Pinstripe Polo, ££7.50 (save £18.50)
What’s the best way to shop Next’s Black Friday sale?
While there’s no sale this year for Black Friday, here are our tips for future years, and for when it launches any sale – the Christmas sales are just around the corner after all.
There will be limited stock on sizes, so be prepared to act quickly if you see something you fancy but only buy it if you can afford to or were planning to anyway.
You should also always compare prices to see if you can get similar items or even the same items for less elsewhere.
Follow our recommendations below as you prepare.
- Womenswear – we don’t mean to go on about it, but Next has really upped the style stakes and there’s no better department to splurge in.
- Footwear – Next’s footwear offering is really on-trend (inspired by designer styles from the likes of Prada, Attico and Balenciaga), but you can still find comfortable classics for yourself and the kids.
- Outerwear – if you have your eye on one of the retailer’s coats or a puffer for your kids, hold out until November when they will be considerably cheaper.
- Menswear – invest in workwear essentials such as smart trousers and shirts while they’re at their cheapest.
- Homewares – getting your house ready for Christmas? Buy rugs, throws, cushions, table settings, crockery or refresh your decor – Black Friday is the best time to splash out on a new sofa or bed.
- Kidswear – Next has a huge range that starts from baby sizes all the way up to age 16 – it even has some “mini-me” items so that you can twin with your little ones.
- Brands – the retailer stocks fashion brands including Ghost, Lipsy and Finery, so invest in party dresses for a fraction of the cost.
- Sportswear – shop sports and activewear brands such as Adidas, Ivy Park and Superdry.
- Chunky knitwear – this is always a winter staple, but it’s been particularly popular recently and thick knit, midi-length skirts and a chunky biker boot continue to be a top sartorial style.
- Athleisure – this continues to be a popular trend in 2020 and looks set to continue into 2021.
- Boots – no matter how short or tall you are, over the knee boots look great on any length. Invest in a pair and you’ll find yourself teaming them with everything in your wardrobe. Chunky heel to flat, block to kitten, these style staples are here to stay.
In recent years, Next has managed to shake off its frumpy connotations and come up trumps as a fashion destination.
The retailer now stocks labels such as Lipsy, Ghost and Finery but also features up-and-coming designers including Rejina Pyo and Isa Arfen in its Label Mix range.
It’s also collaborated with style icon Emma Willis and signed high fashion model Edita Vilkeviciute who has fronted more than ten Vogue covers and walked for the likes of Isabel Marant, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain, Valentino and Victoria’s Secret.
But its not all about the womenswear – you can nab great value homeware, workwear, menswear and kidswear, as well as flowers and gifts at Next.
How much will my Next delivery cost?
If you’re a die-hard Next fan, or just a self-confessed late night shopper, its worth coughing up the annual fee of £20 for unlimited Next Day Delivery – you can order anything before midnight and still get your purchases by 12pm the very next day.
Otherwise, you’ll pay £3.99 for Next Day Delivery, which is one of the best deals on the high street.
If you’re saving the pennies, you can order to your local store for FREE or send to a Parcel Shop location for £2.50.
Returns are always free of charge.
