You must have heard about Black Friday and Cyber Monday. No? Well then, let us try to find out what these days are all about and what makes people so excited about them.
Black Friday is the traditional start of the holiday shopping season. Prepare for large numbers of people going to shopping centers, because retailers announce many of their biggest sales of the year at this time. It is called “Black Friday” because this shopping date falls on the Friday immediately after Thanksgiving. It is usually the biggest shopping day of the year. With some many consumers eager to start shopping, many retailers open their stores as early 12:01am to allow customers to take advantage of the sales.
Cyber Monday, on the other hand, is when people would do their shopping online. Cyber Monday is like an extension of the shopping spree that people have started on Black Friday. The e-commerce world realized the huge opportunity to do an online version of Black Friday and have it the Monday that immediately follows Thanksgiving. Similarly, many online retailers have their biggest sales of the year on this day. The online shopping during Cyber Monday is often considered the biggest online shopping day of the year in the United States.
Both Cyber Monday and Black Friday are one in terms of shopping and discounts. Shopping nowadays has widened its scope; instead of the usual shopping done in local stores, people are now spending some of their money shopping online. With the efforts of making every online shopping experience be as secure and convenient as possible, many people are now seeing the benefits in doing their shopping online. You can often get the same deals online on Cyber Monday as you could in person with Black Friday, but without the long lines and shopping madness.
This shopping spree’s that occur on these days have already become a tradition in the U.S. and will continue to grow as technology continues to introduce more ways to make the shopping experience more enjoyable for everyone. Don’t forget to look for Flirty Apron’s very own Cyber Monday specials.
