The origins and date of Black Friday
Black Friday is a phenomenon that started in the United States before spreading to the rest of the world, but a little reminder is in order before going any further. This day takes place the day after Thanksgiving. Two hypotheses are put forward as to the origin of its name. The first suggests the use of black ink instead of red ink by traders to keep their accounts on the Friday following the commemoration. The change of color thus evokes the passage from negative to positive.
The second hypothesis recalls the streets immobilized by traffic jams, because of households returning from Thanksgiving holidays. Philadelphia police called Black Friday Friday in 1960. The event officially appeared in 1970 before breaking into France in 2014.
Amazon, initiator of the annual Black Friday ritual in France
Amazon entered France in 2000. A few years later, the company rose to the rank of online store of reference for consumer products. Today, the web giant has more than 300 million references.
The large e-shop is also the instigator of the Black Friday phenomenon in France. He was one of the first initiators of this annual promotional ritual since 2014. At the time, Black Friday was limited to a 24-hour promotional day and against all odds, the event ended with a success. With the enthusiasm for Black Friday, competitors had no choice but to take the same path.
A busy promotion calendar
The big brands and shops are therefore accustomed to organizing a great weekend of promotions towards the end of November but this year due to the current context (Covid-19 pandemic), the good Black Friday plans are starting from Friday 4 December to end on Sunday 6 December 2020, then they will give way to the tips of Cyber Monday on Monday 07/12.
