It’s a Black Friday Bonanza in The Big Issue shop!

Buy products with a social purpose this Black Friday and give back as you grab a bargain

Planning your Black Friday blow-out? You’re not alone! According to research from Retail Economics/Klarna, one in four of us are planning to make a purchase today, flocking to high streets and (more likely) our laptops to have a browse. But why not support causes close to your heart with your hard earned cash instead of opting for a dodgy kitchenware set from your local supermarket?

The Big Issue Shop has some incredible deals on products that will leave you feeling better than a binge on Asos. They’re all from businesses who support their staff or support great causes.

Shop the full Black Friday collection on The Big Issue Shop!

Take Slanj, the homeless tartan shop whose products help raise awareness and funds for local organisations who are fighting to end homelessness in Scotland.

Why not treat yourself to one of their scarves – 15% off this weekend!

Be stylish, safe and seen with discounts on many different GLOW products. Each piece is packed with warm and protection, featuring light-reflective fibreglass fused with the fibres of the yarn.

They teach classes and produce items to sell in their four disciplines of ceramics, jewellery, screen printing and sewing skills. All profits from sales go straight back into the collective.
