Asda has announced that it will be bringing Black Friday back to the UK again this year following its successful launch in 2013.

The retailer will be leveraging the buying power of parent company Walmart – renowned for Black Friday deals in the US where the event is worth $60 billion - to bring deals to customers in the UK.

Among the new products on offer this year are quad bikes - a first for a UK supermarket.

Product details remain a closely guarded secret until they are revealed on Thursday.

Ayaz Alam, Senior Director, General Merchandise, Asda, said: “Last year we were the first major retailer to bring Black Friday to the UK. This year, we’ve stepped it up a gear again and by working closely with Walmart – the godfather of Black Friday – we’ll be bringing an even bigger and better sale to the UK than ever before.

“By jointly sourcing products with Walmart, who havd led the way in Black Friday for over a decade now, we’ve been able to bring products like Quad Bikes to our stores and offer them at unbeatably low prices.”
