Today sees Amazon open the doors to its first ever 'Home of Black Friday' pop-up experience shop in London
Amazon’s unique pop-up experience has been set up this week to celebrate the countdown to the UK’s biggest annual deals event – Black Friday. The event at 13 Soho Square is open to everyone and best of all it’s free, running from today (Tuesday 21st) until Friday 24th, from 12.30pm to 19.30pm each day.
‘We want to make this year’s Black Friday a fantastic experience for not only our customers but also for the UK based sellers using Amazon Marketplace to reach customers around the world,” said Doug Gurr, Country Manager, Amazon.co.uk.
‘Our Home of Black Friday experience brings these two together as we are showcasing some of our biggest and best Black Friday deals – which will be shoppable through our app,’ Doug adds. ‘We’re also offering some fantastic sampling experiences and interactive workshops with some of our Marketplace and Handmade sellers. We really hope visitors to the pop-up will have a great time and make a good start on their Christmas shopping – if not finish it – while they’re here!’

Located in the heart of London, the pop-up shop space features within five uniquely themed rooms. You can visit a hand-illustrated kitchen, a chic bedroom and beauty parlour, an immersive gaming and technology zone, a whimsical kids play and storytelling room and a creative artisan workshop space.
Customers are invited to explore the best of Amazon’s Black Friday Sale and Amazon Prime within the space, and join in the fun with creative workshops, hundreds of prize giveaways, product demonstrations and special guest appearances.
Visitors can take part in the following free activities:
• Make-up tutorial with YouTube star and beauty expert Lottie Tomlinson

For total ease, customers can shop the curated products on display throughout the pop-up, simply using the scan and buy function on the Amazon App. A dedicated Prime Now delivery area will be in the lobby at the venue, allowing shoppers to have purchases available on Prime Now delivered to the pop-up within two hours
The Amazon Black Friday Sale will run from 17th to 26th November. It’s offering fabulous new deals on offer as often as every 5 minutes – on everything from the latest consumer electronics and Amazon devices to this year’s must-have toys, games, fashion, beauty and home items.
