Black Friday, which started in the US in 1952, is an unofficial holiday where retailers offer incredible offers of up to 80% discounts on products sold. This, in turn, is known to attract masses of consumers who cue outside retailer outlets for hours in a quest to secure as many discounted products as possible. Both offline and online stores offer exclusive deals on that day.

So why the Name ‘Black’ Friday?

‘Black’ because many retailers were recorded to have made their highest profits on Black Friday. Also, it is relating to businesses recording their losses in red ink and gains in black. It was reported that people queued at most retail shops early before shops were opened just to be the first to grab the amazing stuffs. The presence of overcrowding in these shops led to many injured with some others losing their lives hence the term ‘Black’.
