If you thought businesses putting up Christmas decorations long before the day was obnoxious, local online retailer Raru has kicked off a Black Friday sale a month before the actual day.

In truth this is just another one of the store’s clearance sales, which Raru is actually quite forward about as this event is called the “Pre-Black Friday Clearance Sale”, so you get what it says on the tin.

We’re covering this one, aside from the Black Friday branding, because it actually has some decent deals. On top of this it features some items such as clear TCG sleeves and LEGO base plates, both of which you never really have enough of in their respective hobbies. We’ve collected a few of the items that we found interesting down below, and the rest of them can be found on the Raru home page.

This sale is on right now and will be over before the end of today, 25th October. If you’re reading this late the site actually has another sale going on called “Rocktober” if you want to buy music equipment.

As always we give the prerequisite warning that Raru has a reputation for hit and miss service, especially with sales. We’ve personally experienced the store refusing to honour a purchase, after we’d already paid, because the sale price was too low.

As a final bit of transparency, the links on this page are not affiliated.
