Regus comes to aid of Black Friday bargain hunters

25th November 2016

Workspace provider offers free access to its Meadowhall shopping centre site Sheffield, 23rd November 2016- Black Friday is becoming an increasingly important date in the calendar for retailers and shoppers alike.

The bargains are not just limited to online deals, and shops are full of people taking full advantage of generous in-store discounts. The difficulty for many, however, is that they are stuck in the office with no realistic chance of nipping out to beat the crowds and grab a deal. Global workspace provider Regus is coming to the rescue, offering a solution to workers in Sheffield who are fearful of losing out on Black Friday's rock-bottom prices. The company is offering free access to its business lounge in Meadowhall shopping centre for the day, giving people a chance to work in a professional setting with free WiFi and refreshments, whilst remaining close to the action. Richard Morris, UK CEO at Regus comments: -We're saying to local workers you don't have to head to the office and miss the bargains. Come to our workspace in Meadowhall and know that you're ideally placed to stay productive and swoop for a bargain. -Black Friday is just one day in the year but we're finding business owners are generally thinking far more flexibly about how and where their staff work. Hopefully, initiatives like this will open more people's eyes to the advantages of agile working such as improved worker wellbeing and productivity. Flexible working is on the rise in the UK, with nearly half of all office workers now able to work remotely for at least half the week. Regus is experiencing month-on-month growth in Businessworld membership, as employers turn to part-time and drop-in workspace to accommodate a distributed workforce.
