Black Friday Is Today The 27th November, The Day After Thanksgiving Day.
So if you are reading this article I think it is fair to say you are not in New York for the Black Friday Sales. Although many people go to New York for their Christmas shopping, is it really worth it?
But then of course after you have paid for your flights and accommodation it would have been cheaper to stay at home and do you’re shopping on the internet. Most of the large American stores offer the same deals on line, so why bother going, unless you like the hustle and bustle of a busy store.
This day is often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in America. In recent years, most major retailers have opened extremely early and offered promotional sales to kick off the holiday shopping season, similar to Boxing Day sales in this country.
Many shops in this country had Black Friday Sales last year which ended in violence between shoppers in many stores.
In fact some shops have said they won’t be partaking in Black Friday this year because of the violence it caused last year. If you remember on the TV news we watched people fighting in Tesco and Asda over televisions and childrens toys.
So if you are going to hit the shops today don’t get involved in a fight over a TV or some other must have item, is it really worth it to save a few pounds and don’t buy just for the sake of it because it seems cheap.
