to Investopedia, the term Black Friday refers to the day
after Thanksgiving, and marks a time when retailers generally
see an upward spike in sales. Many consider this day to
be the start of the holiday shopping season, and it is common
for retailers to offer special promotions and open early
to lure customers. Investopedia's definition also states
that the term Black Friday was originally used in reference
to September 24, 1869, a day of stock market catastrophe.
The term Black Friday naturally
gets a lot of media coverage at the end of the year as the
holiday season approaches. According to
many media companies, over the last few years, Internet
sales have also experienced a boom on this day because most
online retailers offer the same sales and bargains as brick-and-mortar
stores. Black Friday generally offers deep discounts on
highly coveted electronic items as well. However,
in our opinion here at Apparel Search, the sale of clothing
and fashion accessories is far more important then electronics
such as TV's or mobile devices. Why would anyone buy
a new television when they could buy a new pair of shoes
or a blouse?
In regard to fashion, you will find
many bargains on black Friday. If you get to the clothing
stores early, you may have an opportunity to catch some
of the special door buster deals. Unfortunately, door
busters usually go fast. You need to get to the store
as soon as it opens. The door buster products typically
run out fast. If you are looking for Friday Doorbusters,
you should plan to be a pre-dawn shopper (meaning, you must
get up and to the stores early).
Don't worry if you miss all the
special sales on Black Friday. Fortunately, you will

By the way, do you
know what is the meaning of a doorbuster sale? A doorbuster
is a very low-priced item designed to draw people into a
store, on special sale days such as Black Friday. Shoes
and apparel being sold at a loss to the retailer are common
during doorbuster events. The clothing store is fine
with taking a loss on certain products in the hopes that
you will continue shopping once you get inside the store.
The doorbuster sale leads you "into the store".
The goal of the
apparel retailer is then for you to hopefully "stay
in the store", and buy other product that is sold at
a profit to the store.
Many consumers understand
the concept that the retailer has in mind. However,
this does not slow the buyers interest in the sales item.
Some consumers have strong focus... They will pick up the
deeply discounted product and then leave the store with
only that item. Black Friday sales are notorious for
deep discounts including fantastic door buster deals.
This is one of the reasons that black-Friday is so exciting
to many consumers
