It Is Called Black Friday
Although “Black Friday” is often associated with holiday shopping and has been for many years, this wasn’t always the case. This phrase was first used to describe the financial crisis after the collapse of the US gold market. It was then linked to retail after stores had been in the red for the entire year. Retailers found themselves “in black” after the Thanksgiving holiday because shoppers had spent their money on discounted products.
What was the first Black Friday?
CNN Money says that the first Black Fridays were held in Philadelphia in 1950. This term was used to describe all the shoppers who traveled from the suburbs to Philadelphia to shop after Thanksgiving. Why were there so many people? The stores in the city were selling advertising for the Army/Navy match, which was held on the Saturday after Turkey Day.
Is Black Friday a holiday that begins on Thanksgiving?
It was well-known for its extreme Voucher shopping. It was a four-day shopping spree that included spin-offs such as Small Business Saturday, Small Business Sunday, and Cyber Monday. Online shopping is growing rapidly and customers no longer need to wait until Thanksgiving Day to shop for Christmas presents. Target, Amazon, and Macy’s offer Black Friday US discounts in stores and online long before Thanksgiving.
