The ‘Black Friday’ shopping bonanza did not see any police action in the county.
Despite arrests in other parts of the country, it seems bargain hunters in Hertfordshire were better behaved.
Many stores had offers including VAT-free prices and deals of up to 50 per cent off in Welwyn Garden City, including stores in the Howard Centre and other retail outlets, for the US-inspired event.
Retailers’ websites crashed and shops did brisk buisiness as people flocked to snap up the deals.
Asked whether police had been called to any scuffles over budget goods, a Hertfordshire Constabulary spokesman told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “No incidents relating to black Friday have been reported.”
