What is Black Friday? Adopted by the UK as the biggest day for bargins each year.

Here at Soraya Interiors we love a bargain and we are sure that you do to.

Have you already heard of Black Friday? Have you got it in your diary as a day to get all the bargains? Or do you see it as a day to avoid, as a day of unnecessary greed and a day where retailers are just looking to make as much money as possible!

Well, whatever your view you are probably correct, as it seems we can no longer wait for the January sales and that we want bargains all year round.

Interestingly there are a couple of reasons as to why it is called Black Friday.

What is Black Friday?

Here in the U.K Black Friday is another day that has been adopted, as traditionally in the U.S it is the day after their Thanksgiving celebrations.

It is also unofficially the start of the holiday shopping season.

It is named Black Friday because retailers are known to cut their margins dramatically on this day. The reason being, it is the day when many retailers start to see their accounts go from being ‘in the red’ to being back ‘in the black’. Thus many retailers really look forward to this time of the year.

This goes back to the time before computers and spread sheets when accounting was done with pen and paper. Red ink was used to account for a business’s losses, whilst Black ink was used to mark down the gains.

What will you do this year?

Will you be getting out of bed at some unearthly hour to search for that bargain? Will you be online doing the same? Possibly if you are, you may be too late as now many retailers are starting this event before Black Friday, perhaps as early as the Monday before.

Be aware that not everything is on sale. Canny retailers will lure you into their shops with a deal and you walk away with something you did not intend to purchase! Even if that was knocked down, have you really saved money if you did not budget for that item?

So be careful when making your purchases. Also not everything is the same quality. Sometimes you compare an item from one brand against another, but the quality of the item that is so much cheaper, may just not be there.

So to sum up, do not get carried away with all the hype. Make your decisions carefully and who knows, perhaps you will get the bargain of the century. Watch out for our Black Friday deals here at Soraya Interiors. Enjoy shopping responsibly!
