Black Friday FAQ
What is Black Friday?
There’s a long history behind Black Friday that goes back to 1869 and involves stock markets, gold and cunning traders, but we promise we’ll keep it simple. Black Friday is the name given to the day after Thanksgiving in America. Historically, it marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season and has earned a reputation as being a very lucrative time of year for retailers. Over time, Black Friday has become a global event where retailers mark down prices and offer big discounts to customers for one day only. These days, it’s not uncommon to see Black Friday shoppers queuing outside retailers long before stores open, to make sure they cash in on the biggest deals.

Why is it called Black Friday?
There are a number of urban legends surrounding the name of Black Friday. One of the most popular ones is that after a year of operating at a loss (being “in the red”), retailers began earning a profit when shoppers hit the stores after Thanksgiving, resulting in big profits (being “in the black”).

When does Black Friday take place?
Black Friday takes place on the last Friday of November each year.
