The sale period known for crazy good bargains has also been transformed from a single-day shopping spree into a four day bender.

A Quick History

The term ‘Black Friday’ actually stems way back to an 1869 stock market crash in the United States. Speculators were trying to corner the gold market at the time and the White House stepped in to try and stabilise the price. They succeeded in suppressing the gold price but unfortunately the whole stock market imploded. It is said that the term crossed over to retail as stores experiencing poor sales were trading ‘in the red’, however after booming sales for Thanksgiving they were trading ‘in the black’ by the Friday, hence the phrase Black Friday.
