What happened to Black Friday?

Blog by: Chris Louzader

Friday is a day following Thanksgiving Day!  This shopping day has been known for its significant retail discounts and the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. On Black Friday, of course stores often offer huge discounts on a wide range of products. 

Remember back in the day when you’d wake up while it’s still dark to go wait along with a throng of people in line for the doors to open for special hours and hope you don’t get trampled going for that 55-inch TV that was $100 – LOL!  And, you hoped radio station personalities were handing out free donuts!

What happened to Black Friday?  It has evolved, there is the massive growth trend to online shopping.  Also, does it seem like Black Friday pretty much begins the day after Halloween with all sorts of special prices and deals.  Are they really that special when THE Black Friday hits?

I don’t miss the old Black Friday. The current Black Friday, along with Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday are plenty enough.  Enjoy the season!
