Black Friday used to be a one day event where shoppers can find the best deals on just about any product in-stores. Some of the products consist of mattresses, laptops, big screen TVs, clothing, kitchen appliances, and more. These products drop to an all-time low price and oftentimes are in limited quantities. Black Friday takes place the day after Thanksgiving every year . This year, Black Friday will fall on Friday, Nov. 26, 2022. In addition, most stores and businesses started their Black Friday Deals a month before the actual day. 

The History Behind Black Friday

According to, in the 1950s, police in the City of Philadelphia used the term to describe the chaos of shoppers and tourists that flooded the shops during Black Friday. By 1961, the name “Black Friday” came to be, but merchants tried to change the name to “Big Friday” to remove a negative meaning. In the late 1980s, retailers reinvented the name “Black Friday” to reflect a backstory of how accountants used different color ink. If accountants used red ink, that would mean there was negative earnings, and if they used black ink, it was positive earnings. The different color ink indicated a company’s profitability.
