John Lewis does take part in Black Friday, slashing prices across large amounts of its stock. In previous years we've spotted deals on pretty much every category featured online at John Lewis, so it is worth bookmarking key items you have your eye on ahead of November.

Is John Lewis taking part in Black Friday this year?

We don't have official confirmation that John Lewis will be taking part in Black Friday 2021. However, given that the retailer has taken part for the last few years, we reckon they're a safe bet to take part once again in 2021. All deals will be available to view on the official John Lewis Black Friday hub online as soon as they launch.

What to expect from the John Lewis Black Friday 2021 sale?

As in previous sales, we'd imagine that there will be a huge number of discounts to be found on the John Lewis website and in stores when Black Friday rolls around on November 26. Popular categories across the site include:

It's worth doing some research ahead of the sale to check current prices and stock levels of coveted items.

What time does Black Friday start at John Lewis?

Traditionally Black Friday begins at midnight on Thanksgiving in America, and there probably will be a few retailers that launch some midnight deals online in 2021. However, in recent years, a lot of the big high-street stores have started their Black Friday sales a few weeks before the big day. If you want to be first in line, keep your eye on the John Lewis website a few weeks ahead of November 26.

How long is John Lewis Black Friday sale on for?

Black Friday sales tend to last until Cyber Monday. However, some shops keep their deals running throughout December as people shop around for Christmas presents. John Lewis has not yet revealed whether it will offer deals beyond Black Friday or what sorts of things will be discounted. Watch this space for all the latest updates and announcements as the shopping event draws closer.

When does the John Lewis Black Friday sale end?

John Lewis have in previous years rolled out Black Friday deals early and continued to offer its customers price cuts on items right through to Cyber Monday, which falls on November 29 this year. Deals normally are available online and end at midnight on Cyber Monday.

When is Cyber Monday and is John Lewis taking part?

Cyber Monday is the online-focused event that follows the week after Black Friday. Pretty much every retailer that takes part in Black Friday keeps its offers running over the weekend and onto Cyber Monday. So if John Lewis takes part in Black Friday, we'd be surprised if the offers weren't still available three days later on November 29.
