It is almost that time of the year: when the Friday after Thanksgiving cues the holiday season. The official name is “Black Friday.” The phrase Black Friday refers to the single day of the year when many retail companies finally go “into the black” meaning they make a profit.

This is when shoppers will flood the stores in the hope of taking advantage of the holiday’s best bargains. Shoppers will be looking for everything from electronics, toys, clothing and gifts to holiday decorations, supplies and more. The daily papers have circulars with specials at almost every retail location from big box stores to outlet malls. Individual stores and the iTunes app store have smartphone applications that can be used to check pricing specials, maps of the stores and hours.

Many stores have already released Black Friday advertisements, and these include Walmart (Apple iPad 32GB 5th Generation – $249.99), Best Buy (Sharp 50” Smart 4K UHDTV with Roku – $179.99), Target (urBeats In-Ear Buds – $49.99), Kohl’s (NuWave 6-qt. Air Fryer – $99.99 w/ $30 Kohl’s Cash), Old Navy (Cozy Socks – $1)and Michaels (Friday 7AM-NOON 25% Off Entire Purchase) are a few. Many stores had special openings on Thanksgiving Day in 2016 but there has been a movement to limit shopping to the official Black Friday.

If you do not want to shop with the crowds on Black Friday, there is always Cyber Monday where you can shop great deals online!
