The origins of Black Friday
Black Friday is a tradition that originated in the United States , more precisely the term "Black Friday" has its origins in the city of Philadelphia.
The '60s were a difficult time for small retailers and department stores in the United States, as sales stopped after Thanksgiving and only started a week or two before Christmas.
It was then that this group of traders came up with the idea of launching a discount campaign on their products, just the day after Thanksgiving, a holiday celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, so the day of the big discounts was set for Friday.
The purpose of this campaign was to motivate customers to start Christmas shopping long before.
That first Friday of the Philadelphia discounts was chaotic, cars and people crowded the streets looking for that item of clothing, accessory, or object that they liked, or that would solve one of their Christmas presents.
The news bulletins warned of the chaos in the city, and the police who directed the traffic in that huge chaos were the ones who described it as Black Friday , as a consequence of the heavy traffic, and the large number of people who wanted to take advantage of discounts.
It is also assumed that the term Black Friday may be related to the fact that small traders managed that day to move from a negative balance, in red, to a positive one, ie in black.
Whatever the exact origin of the term, we know for sure that it spread in a short time in the United States, in the second decade of the year two thousand it reached Latin America, and then in Europe.
It arrived in Romania in 2015; We recall that one of the largest online stores, eMAG, made a statement to Ziarul Financiar, in which it explained that it participated for the first time in Black Friday and that it was a resounding sales success.
This annual event has had a big impact in recent years, as it is the largest promotion by most brands, which means a significant increase in annual revenue.
