Black Friday and Cyber Monday Options
We’re rapidly approaching that one time of year all diehard shoppers live for – Black Friday and the accompanying Cyber Monday.
Whether you want to shop and spend just pennies on gifts for family and friends or you’re looking for an advantageous position for your own company on these “largest spending days of the year”, you need to know a bit more about each event, where they came from and how to turn them to your advantage.
Where Did Black Friday Originate?
Most of us are familiar with Black Friday – the day after Thanksgiving. This is the largest sale day of the entire year, and the “official” kickoff to the Christmas season (though you’ll doubtless see Christmas sales displays up far, far earlier).
Essentially, this is the busiest shopping day of the year, and has been so since 2005.
The origins of Black Friday lie in the state of Philadelphia, as far back as the 1960s. However, it took some time for the term to grow in use until it was applied across the world. The Philadelphia-centric definition is that the term was coined to describe the massive traffic influx (both pedestrian and vehicular) occurring on the day after Christmas.
However, retailers have offered an alternative definition for the name, and one slightly more applicable to why you’ll see so very many companies offering Black Friday deals. Essentially, it’s the day that the company books move from the red to the black (profit!). Yes, it’s all about finally turning the long year around and building success.
