Amazon gears up for ‘biggest ever Black Friday’

Amazon is gearing up for what is expected to be its “biggest ever Black Friday” with an extra 1,500 seasonal workers hired at one of its Scottish sites in the run-up to Christmas.

The company credits itself with bringing the American tradition, where shoppers are given deals the day after Thanksgiving, to the UK in 2010, with it since making its offers available online for a week.

Ahead of Black Friday the PA news agency was given a tour of the Amazon Fulfilment Centre in Dunfermline, Fife, with a constant stream of activity expected all the way to Christmas Eve.
