Regus is set to provide free access to its Fort Kinnaird Retail Park hub this Black Friday to help busy professionals grab a bargain
Black Friday is an important date for retailers and shoppers alike, seeing shops fill with people eager to take advantage of generous in-store discounts. The difficulty for many professionals, however, is that they are stuck in the office with no chance of nipping out to bag a bargain.
That’s according to global workspace provider Regus, which says it’s coming to the rescue by offering a solution to workers in Fort Kinnaird who are worried about missing out on Black Friday’s rock-bottom prices. The company is offering free access to its business lounge in Fort Kinnaird Retail Park for the day, giving people a chance to work in a professional setting with free WiFi and refreshments, while remaining close to the shops.
Richard Morris, UK CEO at Regus, said: “Local workers don’t have to head to the office and miss the bargains this Black Friday. By using our workspace in [location] they can stay productive and be ideally placed to hit the shops.
“Hopefully, initiatives like this will open more people’s eyes to the advantages of flexible working such as improved worker morale 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.
