We get a little bit excited about Black Friday weekend every year - there’s an undeniable buzz surrounding this particular sale period and we all get caught up in it, but what actuallyis Black Friday?
There are several myths surrounding the origin of ‘Black Friday’ - the most famous, and arguably most glamorous, is a conspiracy concocted by two stock market financiers who bought up as much gold in America as they could so that they could sell it later at super high profits. When their plan was unravelled the day after Thanksgiving, shops who had been operating ‘in the red’ (at a financial loss) were finally able to register their takings ‘in the black’, ie, at a profit.
In actual fact, it was to do with the raucous behaviour of the crowds that flocked to Philadelphia in anticipation of the Army vs Navy annual football game on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving, which caused a headache for the police force year after year. The term ‘Black Friday’ didn’t quite catch on across the US until years later, and took longer still to expand across the pond to the UK and other countries around the world. Now we see it everywhere, and with the digital age on the rise, we saw the addition of Cyber Monday in 2005, which has turned the single day sales into a 4 day weekend in which retailers and shoppers alike can get swept up in the excitement of the season!
As interesting as the albeit dark history of the term Black Friday is, we know you probably have some questions about what this sale means for you and your orders, so we’ve put together a little FAQ based on the last four years of Black Friday sales to help you!
The shelf life of an unopened glue bottle is 6 months from the date of production. We just had a new delivery for Black Friday so all glues will be perfectly fine if you stock up with a few! Just remember to store them in the airtight container, away from direct sunlight and protect them from high temperature, and only buy what you will definitely use!
Unfortunately due to an extremely high volume of orders, our warehouse staff will be unable to merge parcels or add any additional items to orders during this period! We know it’s exciting and you want to be FAST but this year our sale is on for two whole weeks, so you have plenty of time!
There are a few must-haves that should definitely be in your basket:
We recommend purchasing a maximum of 5-6 glue bottles at once, to make sure you will use them all within their shelf life! The same goes for any liquids such as Cleanser and Primer - any orders containing more than 10 of ANY item will be flagged to our team who may be in touch, and may need to reduce the number of any particular item in your order. This isn’t because we want to be mean or upset anyone, we just want to be sure that every product you open is fresh, working perfectly, and puts a smile on your face. We also want to make sure there’s enough of everything to go around!
Unfortunately not, all discount codes have been disabled for the duration of the sale. Once the sale is over, you’ll be able to use your code just like normal!
We’re doing everything we can to ensure there are no significant delays to the sending or receiving of parcels - we’re having as many staff as we can whilst still following all COVID-19 regulations, and will be working some extra hours to ensure that we don’t get snowed under, we just ask that you’re patient with us!
We’re trying very hard to have all messages answered as quickly as we possibly can, but as you can probably imagine, we have quite a high volume of inquiries around the sales! The BEST thing to do is to only message on one platform, be it Email, Instagram, WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger - all of these come to one central hub which is looked after by our whole Customer Care team, so we will get back to you as soon as we can!
To put it simply, no. In the name of fairness, the discounts you see on any product are as low as the product will go during the sale, there won’t be any instances where prices are decreased any further.
We will always try to make any returns process as simple as possible, and will always work with you to find out how to improve your experience with that particular product, or to find an alternative. We might need to ask some follow up questions - not because we don’t trust you, but because we want to know the nitty-gritty and solve the problem from the very root!
Have loads of fun with your Black Friday shopping, we're here if you need us and we can't wait to see what you got! Tag us in your IG stories! 🎉
