Black Friday, the day after the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, has become a cultural phenomenon.
It’s the biggest shopping day of the year for retailers and shoppers in the U.S.
We have all seen the images of people lining up for days in advance of huge sales that only happen once per year. We have also seen the crazy videos of people fighting over items, and the mass crowds in stores that make you wonder if it’s worth the trouble. The sales numbers suggest that people in the US (and increasingly, in Canada) believe the crowds and line ups are worth the deals.
