The term or name “Black Friday” is believed to have originated in Philadelphia and have been used as an expression before 1961, with broader usage occurring after 1975.  In more recent times, it started to refer to the time of year when retailers began turning a profit and going “in the black” with their sales figures.

The day considered one of, if not the, busiest days in retail and online shopping.  Customers typically have that day off whether it be from work or school, and they have the weekend as well to enjoy times with their family.  That brings them to the shopping scene out in retail stores as they buy gifts for Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanza and other major holidays that follow after.

In addition, many online retailers offer attractive sales to give shoppers the convenience of shopping from home online.  Amazon, Walmart, Target and Best Buy are just a few of the retailers you’ll find giving these sales through Cyber Monday and beyond.

The Black Friday shopping tradition is an annual day of deals and sales starting as early as a week ahead of time online, and a day ahead in the real world stores.  In the past, Black Friday got started at early in the morning around 6 a.m. at most retailers.  Shoppers would often camp out in lines at the storefronts so they could be among the first inside to get the items they wanted on sale.  Certain door busters and deals were available in limited quantities making for an all-out brawl in some cases to get your hands on the items you wanted.

In 2011, stores changed things up when they started to open at midnight for the first-time ever.  Then, just last year, some stores opened as early as 8 p.m. EST on Thanksgiving Day, ushering in customers for their sales deals even earlier.  This has many wondering if stores will open up even earlier in 2013, 2014, and beyond, as they try to attract more and more customers.

The Black Friday tradition will continue to evolve year after year, with retailers in the real world and online making changes to how they do business.  Only recently has the use of mobile devices for shopping really started to flourish.  In the past, online shopping was a rarity, and now it has become quite commonplace.  That leads us and others to wonder, what’s next for this fun-filled and busy shopping day know as Black Friday?
