However, The Australian Financial Review has reported an increasing number of Australian brands won’t be participating in Black Friday this year, citing ethical concerns including sustainability and overconsumption. Australia fashion brand Pyra closed its online store for the event and encouraged its customers to get outdoors instead saying, "Hyper-consumerism poses one of the biggest threats to the planet, and flash sales can often lead to rushed purchasing decisions, driven by the fear of a sell-out”.
As the week long sale event comes to an end, did you participate in this years Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales? Did you buy something you had been searching for or was it an impulse buy? Do you have any ethical concerns with these type of sales?
