What is Black Friday? As Americans begin their Thanksgiving celebrations, many are poised for the retail blowout which follows Thursday 28 November 2013 10.52 EST In 2012 US shoppers spent an estimated $11.2bn on Black Friday. Photograph: Chris Hondros/Getty Images North America Hilary Osborne In the US, Black Friday falls the day after the country's Thanksgiving celebration, and is the traditional start to the Christmas shopping season. It has become a discount shopping day when millions of US shoppers are lured by massive savings, both online and at stores around the country. This year it falls on Friday 29 November. Some claim the term Black Friday was coined to illustrate the point at which shops and stores start to make a profit, or go "into the black". Others believe it was first coined by the Philadelphia police department, which had become fed up with shoppers causing crowded pavements and traffic jams on the Friday after Thanksgiving. In 2012, an estimated $11.2bn was spent by US customers who hit the shops in their droves, while online spending broke the $1bn barrier for the first time. Over the whole weekend a total of $59bn was spent. The US National Retail Federation expects 140 million people to go shopping over the weekend, both online and in stores. Although shoppers are increasingly making purchases on Thanksgiving itself, Friday remains the key day for retailers, with the federation finding that 69% of consumers (97 million people) will go shopping. Quantcast has forecast that consumer electronics and toys will be the most searched for items for online shoppers, with Walmart and Target the most searched for retailers. Retail workers are planning a day of action across the US to protest against poor wages and conditions, with Walmart set to see demonstrations at 1,500 stores. In the UK, Black Friday is slowly being adopted by retailers, led by those with US parent companies. Amazon has been offering discounts all week while Asda is planning a sale in its stores. It starts at 8am and will include offers of up to 70% off a range of products including plasma TVs and tablets. John Lewis is running a one-day Black Friday sale in stores and online. Sunday and Monday are expected to be busier shopping days in the UK online. Tags: Consumer affairs, Consumer spending, Economics, United States
