Black Friday SEASON is here!

currency_dollar green


So we just had Halloween, and crazy (festive) people are already putting Christmas decorations up BUT we have Thanksgiving first, and we also have that most commercial and highly controversial shopping holiday that is Black Friday. Shoppers love it, retail workers and their families… not so much.


This year, Walmart and Amazon have started their countdown to Black Friday early with discounts having already begun on November the 1st! They’ve told their customers that they’ll be cutting prices on TWENTY THOUSAND items over the next month leading up to Black Friday including a special cyber event on November 3rd.


Amazon also began their lead up to Black Friday on Saturday with the addition of special ‘Countdown to Black Friday Featured Deals’.


Black Friday falls on November 28th, with a lot of stores opening for 24 hours beginning on Thanksgiving. Some people believe that in the name of giving customers good holiday season bargains, stores are purely looking for maximum profit and taking retail workers away from their families on a very family-centric holiday. Macy’s and Kohls have just announced that they both will be opening at 6pm on Thankgiving, which is two hours earlier than last year.


Whatever you think about Black Friday, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be going away or dying down any time soon, in fact the opposite appears to be happening. Try and get the best deals out of it that you can whilst complying with your morals, and you’ll be doing great!


Remember: it’s never too early to get presents! Because presents rock.
