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.

Support your local vendor

Give your vendor a hand up and buy the magazine. Big Issue vendors are some of the most vulnerable members of our society. But, at the same time, they are micro-entrepreneurs. By supporting their business, you can help them overcome homelessness, financial instability and other social disadvantages that hold them back.
