BLACK FRIDAY on ABOUT YOU
Black Friday 2020: November 27th, 2020
Like every year, this BLACK FRIDAY will be all about price wars! With massive discounts planned, prices are going to race to the bottom and make shoppers everywhere swoon. Ever wonder what the history is behind these massive BLACK FRIDAY sales? ABOUT YOU explains:
The term BLACK FRIDAY orginates from the USA and describes the day after American Thanksgiving. Many Americans use the following Friday as a bridge holiday to start buying the first Christmas presents – the Christmas Season has officially started!
Business owners started to notice this trend as well and started introducing huge discounts to increase sales. On BLACK FRIDAY, many shops open as early as 05:00 a.m., when customers can already enjoy endless discounts, special offers and huge pricedrops. Many people queue up in front of shops the night before to be among the first to get their hands on discounted items.
Since the spreading of e-commerce, CYBER MONDAY was introduced on the Monday after Thanksgiving. While BLACK FRIDAY deals where originally meant for brick and mortar businesses, CYBER MONDAY deals were aimed at the e-commerce sector. Nowadays both days are joined to form a long-weekend full of hot deals.
Ever wonder why this day full of discounts is called "BLACK FRIDAY"?
There are many theories and myths regarding the origin of the term "BLACK FRIDAY" – here you'll find the three most popular ones:
- Theory 1: The huge mass of people gathering on this day and streaming out of the shopping malls melt together to look like an enormous black mass.
- Theory 2: By selling lots of discounted items, the business owners turn their previous losses, their "red numbers", into profitable "black" ones.
- Theory 3: While counting their huge profits, the business owners' fingers turn black.
What everyone agrees on, however, is that the business owners earn a lot and shoppers can save a lot of money – win-win!
