Let us tell you a little bit about the origins of Black Friday...
Black Friday is the annual shopping extravaganza originating from America which takes place the day after Thanksgiving, signalling the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. It’s the one day of the year where retailers collectively launch huge flash sales and discounts both in-store and online, so there really is no better time to bag yourself some astonishing deals. With Black Friday becoming more and more of a global phenomenon each year, Black Friday has snowballed into one of the UK’s biggest sales bonanzas of the year and that’s certainly fine by us!
Thanksgiving falls on the fourth Thursday in November this year, so Black Friday deals will be launched globally from Friday, 27th November 2020. This year, our unbelievable deals will be available to shop a week earlier, so keep a firm eye on our site to be sure to be one of the first to snap up some incredible bargains.
The only faux you need to concern yourself with around here is our faux fur, as we certainly don’t create false Black Friday deals for our customers at Select! There’s always some Black Friday speculation that businesses raise their prices a week before Black Friday sales begin in order to make their Black Friday discounts appear cheaper, but that certainly is not the case at Select. We can promise you now that there’s nothing false about our Black Friday fashion sale, so yes, as unbelievable as they may seem, our deals truly are that great!
Accountants use black to signify profit and red to signify loss, so with Black Friday being one of the most profitable days for the economy and for retailers across the globe, it was only right for the sales extravaganza to be named Black Friday. However, Black Friday wasn’t always perceived as a positive day. It was originally named Black Friday back in the 60s by police in Philadelphia who complained about the congested streets clogged with pedestrians and motorists, thanks to the pouring of people into town on the Friday after Thanksgiving.
