Who invented Black Friday?

It’s something that sly marketing executives for retailers caught onto in America. Over there, Black Friday occurs the day after Thanksgiving, thus allegedly signalling the beginning of the Christmas season.

It’s been a wonderful excuse for retailers to boost sales with in-store and online deals and businesses in the UK have been fanning the flames of the burning holes in pockets for some years now.

Brace yourself.
