What is Black Friday?
Black Friday falls on Friday 25th November 2016 and if last year is anything to go by, this day is set to be the biggest shopping day of the year. Almost every retailer and store will offer huge discounts to shoppers as 24-72 hour sales dominate the high street and retail websites. People have been known to stand in line for hours in an attempt to nab the best deals during what is usually a day of complete sell-outs, and it’s not uncommon for shoppers to come to blows as they scrabble for the best bargains! This is probably why last year, most people opted to shop online and avoid the crowds. In fact last year, Black Friday brought in $2.72 billion in e-commerce sales, up 14% from 2014. Watch out for Cyber Monday deals this year too; as last year Cyber Monday topped the sales charts by offering shoppers huge savings and mega deals on technology and electricals.

Black Friday originated in the US and falls the day after Thanksgiving. This big discount day traditionally marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. The term ‘Black Friday’ was first coined in Philadelphia in the 1960’s by police officers who were frustrated by the congestion caused by shoppers on the hunt for pre-Christmas bargains in store sales. Retailers also say that the name refers to shops being propelled ‘out of the red’ and ‘into the black’ because of the huge boost in sales.
Despite originating in the US, Black Friday had made its way across the Atlantic over the last couple of years and really took off in the UK in 2013. Black Friday is increasingly becoming an online shopping event, with UK online sales up by 36% year on year to £1.1 billion on Black Friday 2015. Top brands are now offering bigger and better discounts every year with many Black Friday UK deals now offered exclusively online.
Last year, fights broke out in various stores throughout the UK, and Police were called to a number of supermarkets. Check this out!
