Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year, comes right after Thanksgiving Day. Its arrival signals that the holiday shopping season is in full swing. Millions of Americans start buying their holiday presents on this day when retailers lower their prices, giving massive discounts to entice people into their stores. Stores extend their hours on Black Friday, sometimes starting as early as the evening of Thanksgiving Day and spilling into the weekend that follows.
Shoppers line up in droves in the wee hours of the morning, hoping to be the first into stores to snag toys, electronic devices, and other big-ticket items that are priced incredibly low. In addition to offering holiday discounts, retailers use this day as an opportunity to clean out their inventories and make room for holiday products and new arrivals for the coming year.
Challenges of Black Friday Shopping
People can save a lot of money shopping on Black Friday because of the huge sales and giveaways from manufacturers and retailers. If you’re organized, Black Friday is also a great way to tick down your list of holiday purchases in just one or two days. But shopping on Black Friday can have its drawbacks, too. First, you have to navigate through traffic snarls to get from store to store. Once you get to the store, you have to fight your way through massive crowds of humanity—and maybe even tussle over a piece of merchandise that more than one person is vying for. It can be a jungle out there.
Send a Unique Gift
If you want to avoid the crowds and the hassles of Black Friday shopping, consider sending soup. You can send it anywhere in the country by pressing a few buttons on your computer.
