Nowadays we all know it as term for mad discounts and shopping craziness, but above all, when it comes to business, as billions worth Black Friday deals. But in case you have forgotten the term black Friday wasn’t referring to something positive, when first used in 1869; it was used for sudden market drop that led to depression whereas use of the term continued for describing a number of Fridays in history where an event led to public chaos or disaster.
And here it comes the most crazy holiday shopping weekend of the whole year. Retailers and customers are getting ready for the big opening which is due to start on the Thanksgiving evening. Everything indicates that this holiday shopping weekend that includes Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday is going to be hot and full of shopping craziness.
Even though Thanksgiving is just a few days away, the holiday shopping season spree has already begun. And yes, these days holiday in general does not have much in common with the present Black Friday Frenzy which starts over the one-month long season of haunting for holiday deals.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is moving its Black Friday deals even earlier this year as they are to start at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. The world’s largest retailer has announced three waves of deals this year and at the same time it has assured that all its clients will be able to get their Black Friday deals.
