What is Black Friday?
It’s simply the day after Thanksgiving (a holiday celebrated by Americans) and has traditionally been seen as the the start of Christmas or holiday shopping season. This might be the reason it became a huge shopping event, with people preparing for the holidays, although the price drops are certainly also a big contribution. In recent times it’s become a well-known global event of massive proportions that people look forward to.
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. It’s grown beyond just a one-day occasion, as retailers now offer specials for up to a week long. 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 superdeals on offer.
