When is Black Friday 2013?
Black Friday, the unofficial start to the Christmas shopping season, occurs the day after Thanksgiving. For 2013, Black Friday falls on Friday, November 29th. Black Friday always occurs the day after Thanksgiving because the reprieve from work equals free time for millions of Americans, and retailers have been capitalizing on this opportunity to steer people into stores since the 1930s.
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days of the year. The unofficial holiday has become famous in recent decades for the million of shoppers who flood both the brick-and-mortar and online stores of retailers. To lure in consumers, stores often offer some of their best deals of the year on select merchandise, driving intense competition with other retailers. Retailers have become increasingly aggressive in promoting fantastic bargains with promotions such as doorbusters and loss leaders.
How Can I Best Find Black Friday Sales?
The most important tip for finding the best Black Friday deals is to do your homework. Previous research is invaluable as the crowds overwhelm shopping malls on Black Friday. Having a plan in place for which items to buy, where to go, and how to shop efficiently and effectively saves time, money, and headaches on the busy day. Retailers release their Black Friday advertisements prior to the date, but these ads are often leaked to the public weeks before Black Friday.
