Inherited from our neighbours across the pond, Black Friday began life as an American retail tradition that saw budget-savvy shoppers flock to their favourite shops in search of the best deals on tech, entertainment, gifts and appliances. Taking place the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday marks the beginning of the busy Christmas shopping period and is now considered to be one of the biggest shopping days in the retail calendar.
While stocks last, please note that all items may not be discounted.
While Black Friday might seem like a relatively new concept to many Irish shoppers, it can actually be dated back to the late 19th century. During this time, many US retailers began to sponsor Thanksgiving Day parades to mark the beginning of the holiday shopping season. Back then, retailers adhered to an unwritten agreement that they would wait until after the parades had finished to advertise any holiday sales.
In 1938, during the Great Depression, Thanksgiving happened to fall on the fifth Thursday of November, making the peak shopping season shorter. Retailers across the US were at risk of bankruptcy, and so asked President Franklin D. Roosevelt to move the holiday to the fourth Thursday of the month. In 1941, a law was passed stating that Thanksgiving would always fall on the fourth Thursday of November no matter what.
Quickly cementing itself as one of the biggest shopping days of the year, many workers began calling in ‘sick’ to avail of the low sale prices. In fact, the mass absences actually encouraged some businesses to declare that day as another paid holiday.
Nowadays, Black Friday is a global retail phenomenon, with more and more customers using it as an opportunity to snap up great deals in the run up to the festive season.
In the run up to the big day, be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages, where we’ll be revealing some of our biggest discounts. But remember, the best deals tend to get snapped up pretty fast, so make sure to log on early to avoid disappointment.
Oh, and don’t forget about Cyber Monday. Taking place on the Monday directly after Black Friday, online shoppers can expect to make further savings on big brand products, as well as discounts on shipping and delivery charges.
First coined in 2005, the term Cyber Monday has been adopted by online retailers across the globe to highlight the biggest internet shopping day of the year.
