Conquering Black Friday: The Story

Conquering Black Friday: The Story

Nov 24, 2023

Behind the Bargain Frenzy Black Friday, a commercial tradition that thrills deal seekers worldwide, there is a fascinating origin that goes beyond the queues outside stores. 

As we gear up for the whirlwind of shopping, let's take a moment to rewind and explore the roots of this global shopping spree day. 

The term "Black Friday" was first coined in the 1960s in Philadelphia, USA, to describe the chaos and congestion caused by intense traffic of cars and pedestrians on the day after Thanksgiving. It was a day when many employees took time off to enjoy the long weekend, creating a frenzy of activities in the city streets. 

The expression "Black Friday" then evolved to signify the moment when retailers move from being in the red to turning a profit on their books, symbolizing the transition from losses (represented by the color red) to profits (symbolized by the color black). 

Over the years, Black Friday has transitioned from the lively streets of Philadelphia to the vast spaces of malls and e-commerce sites worldwide. This day of massive promotions is now synonymous with great deals, exceptional discounts, and the unofficial kickoff to the holiday shopping season. 

This year, here at Diggers Factory, we're also celebrating Black Friday. Instead of getting lost in the crowd of offers and stores, we're offering you a very special musical experience. We've curated a selection of discounted vinyl records specifically designed to satisfy the most discerning music lovers... Make your choice!
