Black Friday originated in the USA, where stores open early once a year the day after the Thanksgiving public holiday. Now it has become a fixture in seasonal trading calendars in the UK and worldwide. For customers, it’s the perfect time to stock up on Christmas presents! Everybody knows that at Black Friday event you’ll find great offers on the home, electricals and technology, and clothing items. Many people stand in front of the shops early in the morning; this to be the first to come into the shops. So there is always great chaos!
