1. Make a list!

Come prepared! Treat your Black Friday shopping trip like a military operation. Have a think about what you want and what shops you’ll need to visit beforehand. You can check out the full list of stores available by visiting and heading over to the Shops page. Make a list of where you’ll need to go and then stay disciplined – this will help ensure you can maximise your shopping time and your budget! 

2. Research online 

Many stores are extending their discount period beyond the normal one day and having ‘Black Five Days'. Check out what your favourite brands are doing the week before the big day, in case their discount is valid for a longer period.

3. Grab a bite to eat

You’ll need to ensure you’re properly fuelled for your shopping trip, so why not turn up early and treat yourself to breakfast before you get stuck in to your shopping? Giraffe do a delicious Full or Veggie Brunch or pick up a new Power Pot from Pret a Manger if you’re on the go. Re-fuel with a bite to eat at lunchtime or in the evening to take a breather from the busyness. With delicious restaurants like Carluccio'sL’Osteria and The Real Greek (which opens on Black Friday!),we’ll make sure you don’t go hungry.

4. Make a day of it

Why not plan some activities during the day to break up the shopping trip? Take the kids along to Jungle Rumble for a round of crazy golf – they even have baskets on hand to hold your shopping! Or sit back and relax watching the latest movies at Showcase Cinema de Lux.

5. Cabot Circus PLUS app

Make sure you download the Cabot Circus PLUS app before you start your shopping trip. You’ll find all the information about the latest news and events in the centre, a handy map to show you around, plus sign up to unlock exclusive offers and competitions. No shopping trip is complete without it!

6. Shopping made easy

Did you know Cabot Circus is a Collect+ location? So if you can’t make it in for Black Friday you can shop online and collect your parcels from our Information Desk when convenient for you. Why not make a night of it and dine out while you’re here?
