Black Friday is a beast. The shopping extravaganza that follows Thanksgiving has practically eclipsed the preceding holiday itself, with Black Friday deals starting earlier and earlier as each year passes that by 2020, we’ll probably be able to get Black Friday deals the Monday before Thanksgiving. What corporate America wants, corporate America gets.
Whether you’re a fan of the dark underbelly of consumer capitalism that is Black Friday or not, the fact of the matter is that it’s probably not going anywhere anytime soon. That is, until Cyber Monday finally eradicates the need for anyone to ever leave their house to shop for anything.
