An Argos spokesperson said: 'During Black Friday our customers benefit from a huge range of deals on a wide range of products, all at the same time. It said: 'While our prices - like all retailers - can fluctuate throughout the year, we're proud to offer our Price Promise across our entire range - and this covers the Black Friday trading period'.
