Smaller businesses have complained they would lose out to the online giant if it is allowed to go ahead with the annual promotional event, originally imported from the US, while their doors remain closed.

 

Amazon France boss Frederic Duval told broadcaster TF1 that they have decided to push back the date of Black Friday to allow shops and physical stores to reopen before December 1.

The sale had been planned for November 27 but could instead take place on December 4, he added.

Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire had on Wednesday asked retailers to "postpone" the massive sale, and talks with the sector were slated for Friday. On Thursday he hailed "the spirit of responsibility" shown by sellers who have agreed to delay the promotion.
