Hey y’all! Anyone who knows me over the years knows…. I LOVE THE HOLIDAYS!!!! So I’m back again this year to talk about Black Friday and how it’s going to affect your business. I’m also sharing my Black Friday predictions as well as which stores will be open on Thanksgiving this year. There’s less than 50 days to Black Friday, so let’s get ready to kick off a slew of sales!
Each retail holiday has a different sales focal point from the others. As every business is vying for the sale of the season, they are kicking off earlier and running sales longer (called the Christmas Creep), sometimes up to 3 days before the actual sale day and a week after.
Black Friday is the unofficial beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the United States. As a retailer, there are many things you can be doing even now to prepare to capitalize on this shopping frenzy.
