Preparations underway at the Kilkenny Group Store ahead of ‘Green Friday’ on November 29 – intended to replace the US shopping construct, Black Friday, in Ireland.
More than €50 million is spent in Ireland over the Black Friday weekend and Green Friday is “a powerful and passionate drive to reawaken people to the significance of buying Irish, and the wealth of talent and innovation Irish businesses represent”.

At least one person has been injured as a chain store’s sales promotion descended into “bedlam”. Asda stores across Northern Ireland were scenes of chaos, according to callers to the BBC.
Hundreds of people queued outside the shop from 05:00 GMT for cut-price goods that included televisions sets which were reduced from £179 to £99.
However, when it got under way three hours later, there was what one woman described as a “stampede” with people wrestling over the goods. There were 24 sets on sale at the reduced price.
