Black Friday Shopping Spree
Shopping on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California, USA
Are you ready to shop for Black Friday holiday?
Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days in the USA. There are two popular theories as to why the day after Thanksgiving Day is called Black Friday. One theory is that the wheels of vehicles in heavy traffic on the day after Thanksgiving Day left many black markings on the road surface, leading to the term Black Friday.
The other theory is that the term Black Friday comes from an old way of recording business accounts. Losses were recorded in red ink and profits in black ink. Many businesses, particularly small businesses, started making profits prior to Christmas. Many hoped to start showing a profit, marked in black ink, on the day after Thanksgiving Day.
Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. On this day, many retailers open very early, often at 4 a.m., or earlier, and offer promotional sales to kick off the shopping season, similar to Boxing Day sales in many Commonwealth countries. Black Friday is not actually a holiday, but many employers give their employees the day off, increasing the number of potential shoppers.
The stretch of shops, between Santa Monica Boulevard and Wilshire Boulevard, on Rodeo Drive is only three blocks long. This must be the most sought after residential shopping area synonymous with high fashion, luxury and star-studded in Los Angeles!
I fully aware that your usual shopping centers offering crazy low prices at this time of the year. But if you are looking forward to a great shopping experience this Black Friday and it is not fighting the crowds, consider shopping on the ultra posh Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills at your leisure.
