What is Black Friday? The short answer is that Black Friday is when retailers put on special offers for their customers. Many stores even extend their opening hours, giving everyone the opportunity for a great Black Friday shopping deal.
The Christmas trade starts with Black Friday shopping
Black Friday is held on the fourth or last Friday of November. Therefore shopping on Black Friday is an enormous advantage for consumers as they can save a fortune on Christmas gifts, before the busy Christmas season begins.
A festive tradition of special offers
The tradition of Black Friday shopping comes from the United States, which took off in the 90's. Black Friday is celebrated the day after the American holiday of Thanksgiving. Many public employees have the day off on Black Friday. To mark the occasion, large department stores such as Macy’s organise festive Christmas parades.
Why is the event called Black Friday?
The Americans named this big bargain day ‘Black Friday’. The name originates in Philadelphia and refers to the intense traffic and queues in the shops and streets created by the many people who head out to shop the unmissable offers of Black Friday.
Benefits of Black Friday online
Black Friday online has also become popular with consumers. Instead of queuing in shops with lots of other bargain hunters, you can choose to sit at home in your living room and find the best deals at your leisure.
