It's also a great way to kick off the Christmas gifting season, offering customers the opportunity to get something unique for their friends and family this holiday. 

Artists such as Lizzo, Lewis Capaldi and U2 are celebrating this year's Black Friday event with limited edition runs of one-off pressings that are only available from independent record shops on 29th November. You can find participating shops here.
