Friday 29th November 2019. It’s always the fourth Friday in November; the day after Thanksgiving. But look out for our amazing Black Friday offers from Thursday 21st November, it’s the best time to start your Christmas shopping.
Originating in America, Black Friday has gained momentum to globally become the biggest shopping day of the year.
Traditionally, a lot of people in America have the day after Thanksgiving off work, so they would hit the shops, eager to start their Christmas shopping. Retailers noticed an increase in shoppers on this day, so began to offer exclusive, limited-time deals. This meant that, in one day, retailers’ accounts would go from being ‘in the red’ (loss of profit) to ‘in the black’ (lots of profit) - hence Black Friday.
