What is Black Friday and when will it take place?
Traditionally, Black Friday refers to the day after Thanksgiving (a holiday celebrated by Americans) and is marked by the start of Christmas/holiday shopping season ─ this is the main reason it became such a huge shopping event, with people preparing for the upcoming holidays.
The name of this major event first originated in Philadelphia and then spread across America and into the world as what we commonly know as the big day for shopping. Back then, the term ‘black friday’ pointed toward how businesses used to do do their accounting and fill in their books. This reference dates back to when companies would move from being in the red (making a loss) to being in the black (making a profit).
In recent times, Black Friday has become a well-known global event of massive proportions that people look forward to and this is wholly attributed to the major price drops that are seen in this time. In fact, the adoption of the event from e-commerce sites has seen Black Friday reach new heights, thanks to the immense deals on offer. Black Friday has grown so much beyond just a one-day occasion however, as retailers now offer specials for up to a week long during that period.
Besides the main event, another day to look out for is Cyber Monday where deals, predominantly online, are said to drop even further.
For Zando, it has become one of the biggest days of the year which always brings massive results thanks to the super deals on offer.
