Traditionally, at the end of November, the long-awaited Black Friday comes - a day when the stores reduce product prices as much as possible. This is an adapted reality from the United States, where the Black Friday is the start of pre-Christmas sales that follow the Thanksgiving Day. But the real story behind Black Friday is a bit more complicated and darker than that.
The first recorded use of the term “Black Friday” was applied not to holiday shopping but to financial crisis: specifically, the crash of the U.S. gold market on September 24, 1869. Another fact has surfaced that gives a particularly ugly twist to the tradition, claiming that back in the 1800s Southern plantation owners could buy slaves at a discount on the day after Thanksgiving.
The most commonly repeated story behind the post-Thanksgiving shopping-related Black Friday tradition links it to retailers. As the story goes, after an entire year of operating at a loss (“in the red”) stores would supposedly earn a profit (“went into the black”) on the day after Thanksgiving, because holiday shoppers blew so much money on discounted merchandise.
So, after making a short digression into the history, we will try to find out what will happen to the prices on Black Friday where, during the whole year, discounts range from -30% to -70%, and at the same time dispel the myth that luxury brand goods can not be accessible.
