THE HISTORY OF BLACK FRIDAY, CYBER BLACK FRIDAY 2018, AND CYBER MONDAY
Really? do you seriously want to know how this whole black Friday stuff actually started? Hmm, I thought I was the only one who’s that curious. You can as well pause reading now and see what Jumia has to offer, Lol. But if you still want to satisfy your curiosity, then read on. Black Friday is known as the unofficial start to the Christmas shopping season.
In the late 19th century and early 20th century, many retailers began making a big advertising push for their Christmas sales shortly after Thanksgiving to maximize the shopping season. As many workers are given the day off on the day after Thanksgiving Thursday to lead into the weekend, the Friday after Thanksgiving soon became one of the biggest shopping occasions.
The Brief History of Black Friday
The term “Black Friday” has many suggested origins, with one of the earliest references to the phrase appearing in 1966 in a Philadelphia publication, where it was said that the Philadelphia Police Department used the term in a negative way to refer to the massive traffic jams and mobs of shoppers plaguing the city on that day.
Another popular theory is it refers to the fact that retailers would soon be “in the black” or profitable. As opposed to being “in the red” or incurring losses – due to the onset of the Christmas shopping season, according to accounting terms. Then, as online shopping became more popular, Cyber Monday came about as the day when online retailers would offer lots more discounts and deals, as an alternative to the crowds at the brick-and-mortar stores on Black Friday.
The above information about how black Friday, was gotten as a result of a some googling I did, yea. I had to go that extra for the curious guys like me, hope you learned something. Meanwhile, don’t get carried away by the history of Black Friday.
