Black Friday dates back to the 1960s in Philadelphia, United States. Back then, retailers offered discounts and special promotions to attract customers after Thanksgiving, a holiday of turkey and other traditional dishes.
The origin of the name “Black Friday” has several theories. It was said that traffic in the city became very congested due to the crowds of shoppers and the return of people visiting relatives during Thanksgiving. The most common explanation is that Philadelphia merchants began using the term “Black Friday” to describe the day when their accounts went from red (losses) to black (profits) due to the massive sales that took place on that day, marking a turning point in their annual revenues.
The term “Black Friday” became popular in the 1980s and spread to other countries around the world, including Spain. Today, Black Friday is a global shopping event that generates billions of dollars in sales.
On this day, shops offer big discounts in order to attract new customers and sell out of stock.
In recent years, Black Friday has spread to other countries, including Spain. In Menorca, Black Friday is an opportunity for tourists to find discounts on flights, accommodation, tourist activities and other services.
