A MAJOR high street discounter has launched its first ever Black Friday sale.
Poundland is offering bargain prices on big name brands for the annual sales event.
It’s the first time the bargain retailer has ever hosted sales for Black Friday.
Usually, the chain is one of just a few which decide not to take part.
This is usually because they offer low prices all year round.
This year, Poundland is also slashing prices throughout this week ahead of the main event.
On Wednesday, across 550 Poundland stores, there will be a blanket 20% reduction on all its new baby and kidswear which recently launched.
Plus, there are offers listed on the website already.
Shoppers can find them on Poundland’s newly launched digital website at Poundland.co.uk.
Fresh offers will be dropping every day from today through to Friday.
Some of the deals have already dropped.
For example, you can pick up an Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference cream for just £13 – instead of £45.
Other bargains include Essie nail varnishes reduced by 71% to £3.50 from £15.
You can also find Clarins’ foot cream reduced from £27 to just £15.
One of the biggest bargains we found was a Maybelline Fit Me powder reduced from £9.99 to £2 – a whopping 80% off.
The Sun has contacted Poundland for the full list of discounts on these perfumes and will update this story when we hear back.
Poundland’s commercial director Tim Bettley said: “Whether online or offline, we’re all-in with Black Friday this year for the very first time.
“Our event will allow our in-store shoppers to see for themselves the amazing new kids and babywear we now offer in the majority of our stores.
“Online, we’ve got over 100 Black Friday deals throughout the week so customers can save even more.”
