When Is Black Friday?

Black Friday sales always happen the day after Thanksgiving. However, look ahead and see when your favorite stores start their sales. Some companies open as early as Thursday afternoon.

What Is Black Friday?

Black Friday marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season. Most businesses offer increased discounts and specials, making it the year's busiest shopping day.

The popularity of Black Friday shopping originated in the 1960s, and the origin of its name is debated. Most people believe the name comes from the fact that businesses are turning a profit on this day and are now “in the black.”

What’s the Difference Between Black Friday & Cyber Monday?

Black Friday and Cyber Monday take place in the same timeframe, but there are a few main differences to consider before you make your shopping plans.

The most obvious difference is the date. While Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, Cyber Monday is the Monday after Thanksgiving.

The nature of shopping is also a bit different. Black Friday shopping traditionally occurs in stores, while Cyber Monday is exclusively online. The deals are a bit different between the two days. Cyber Monday deals often center around technology and electronics, while Black Friday offers a range of promotional sales.

In recent years, most companies bundle Black Friday and Cyber Monday together for a weekend of deals, so don’t stress about shopping on one day or the other. Determine which items you need, and decide which day and retailer has the best price. Most furniture items will be discounted online and in person throughout the whole weekend.
