Black Friday

What is Black Friday?

Originating in the United States, Black Friday is celebrated worldwide as a day when you can find unbeatable sales on nearly any product, whether it’s electronics, vehicles, or, yes, even luxury watches. Black Friday is always observed on a Friday immediately following Thanksgiving every year. Although not an official public holiday, some states, such as California, do observe it as a public holiday. In this case, you can look forward to a four-day weekend.

Traditionally, it has been viewed as the start of the holiday shopping season, thanks to the celebratory and generous mood of one of America’s favorite holidays.

The origins of Black Friday are hazy, but the term has a history going back to at least 1961. It’s believed that the name originated in Philadelphia and referred to the heavily congested traffic the day after Thanksgiving, thanks to shoppers and returning revelers. Soon, it evolved to mean the day that retailers start turning a profit from the phrases “in the red” (or, unprofitable) and “in the black” (or profitable).

As you might expect, consumer retailers for electronics, accessories, gadgets, fashion, etc. have risen to the occasion, particularly in the e-commerce space. It’s a day when everyone is encouraged to treat themselves with incredibly generous offers. And, there is no better time to find luxury Swiss watch deals for that piece you have been eyeing.

When is Black Friday Happening?

Black Friday occurs on the first Friday that immediately follows Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving itself is a public holiday in the United States that falls on the fourth Thursday of November each year. As such, you can expect Black Friday to fall between 22 and 30 November.

Physical retailers first started opening at 6:00 am on Friday to accommodate the vast crowds of shoppers. However, this soon started creeping up to the early hours of the morning, with some retailers opening at midnight. Without the same logistical constraints, online retailers, like Chronoexpert, can be even more flexible regarding sales hours.

You can expect most online stores to run Black Friday Promotions for the entire Friday, starting at midnight on Thanksgiving. This counts for most online retailers as well. However, many retailers now run their Black Friday promotions for the entire weekend, including Thanksgiving on Thursday. Some even run the event for a whole week - or longer during mid-to-end November.
