Black Friday Islabike Deals 2019
Are you hoping to find some amazing Black Friday Islabike discounts for your child? You're likely to be disappointed!
ISLABIKES ARE CLOSING THEIR WEBSITE THIS BLACK FRIDAY TO LEAD A CLIMATE CHANGE PROTEST MARCH IN LUDLOW.
In this article we take a closer look at Islabikes policy on Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounting, and where you can find a cheaper Islabike in the run up to Christmas. We need to make it clear that Islabikes are one of the many small businesses who shun the entire Black Friday and Cyber Monday chaos.
Why don't Islabikes do Black Friday or Cyber Monday discounts?
As a small company, with a highly sought after product, Islabikes don't need to enter into the Black Friday / Cyber Monday fray. When I spoke to them about this, they were keen to stress that they want to ensure that every customer knows they are getting a fair price for their Islabike, when the child needs the bike. Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounting would mean parents wait until the end of November to buy a bike, when the child might have needed it months ago. Plus for a small business like Islabikes stockpiling enough stock to deal with Black Friday would prove incredibly difficult plus financially very risky.
This year they've gone one step further and shutting down their website. Instead they're leading a climate change march from their HQ in Ludlow to the town centre.
In a statement they have said
"Islabikes will close for the day and join the Global Strike 4 Future in Ludlow on Friday 29th November.
Our website will be closed for 24hrs on what happens to be Black Friday and our biggest trading day of the year. This is a big statement from us and a measure of just how seriously we take the current situation.
We will march from our Lower Barns location into the centre of Ludlow where we will demonstrate for 3 hours before returning to Lower Barns.
We are facing a global climate emergency. Scientists agree we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. Our governments around the world are failing to act with the urgency necessary to prevent the impending catastrophe.
A single child, Greta Thunberg, has catalysed an international movement of Global Strikes 4 Future calling on governments to ACT NOW. They are still not listening.
We believe the scientists and want to add our support to our children’s cries for help."
Is there anyway to get a cheap Islabike on Black Friday?
There are a few ways, which we've written about in our post on buying cheap Islabikes
Are there any cheaper alternatives to Islabikes that have Black Friday discounts?
Yes there are, although of course you need to remember that an Islabike comes with over a decade of R&D behind it, and the price reflects the quality of the product you're buying. We only ever recommend lightweight and well designed kids bikes here on Cycle Sprog, but within that there is a spectrum - Islabikes really are at the top end of that spectrum for starter and hybrid kids bikes. They come with a 5 year warranty on frame and forks and two years on components, and resale values remain high. If you've changed your mind and want to buy an Islabike, you need to go to www.islabikes.co.uk
