Support Local This Year
As a small, family-run business, we won’t be offering huge Amazon-style discounts this Black Friday. Instead we hope that you will choose to spend your hard-earned money with local Irish businesses. As a thank you to all our loyal customers, we are offering a free underlay with every order! This will save you up to €125, depending on what size rug you choose. Simply choose the size nearest to that of your rug and add to cart. The discount will then applied at the checkout.
If you’ve been following the Champion Green initiative, you’ll be aware of how much your custom means to local retailers. This year it is hugely important that we all buy from Irish retailers wherever possible, both online and instore. Since temporarily closing our store, we’ve been blown away by the support of our customers! The trend for supporting local has grown and grown and we hope it will continue during the busy Christmas period.
Our Top Tips for Black Friday 2020 Ireland
Avoid panic buying
While we know it can be easy to get drawn into the Black Friday deals and madness, it’s important to remember that it’s only a deal if you actually want it. Try to avoid buying unnecessary items just because they are reduced. End last-minute panic by starting your Christmas shopping early and making (and sticking to!) a list.
Do your research
It always helps to be prepared, so do your research online before you make your purchase. Remember we offer a price match guarantee, so if you happen to find one of our rugs cheaper elsewhere, we’ll match that price and give you an extra €10 off. It pays to do your research!
Buy Irish wherever possible
With most Irish stores still closed due to Level 5 restrictions, remember that doesn’t stop you from shopping with them. Follow them on Instagram and check if they have a website. If they’re not online, try calling or emailing them. More often than not they’ll be delighted to help you out with a click & collect option or postage.
Buy a Voucher
If you’re stuck for gift ideas but still want to support Irish, why not purchase a gift voucher? We all have a favourite shop, cafe or salon we would love to return to in the New Year. Giving a gift voucher can be a very thoughtful and much-appreciated gift!
Looking for a gift for a special someone that loves interiors? Get in touch with us and we can post them out a Rugs.ie Gift Voucher. Give the gift of choice this Christmas and let them pick the perfect rug for their home themselves.
So this Black Friday we hope that you will think before you buy. We’re all trying our best to support local this year, our economy needs us now more than ever. If you’re still on the hunt for a Black Friday bargain, we’ve added a few of our favourite affordable rugs below!
