When is the exact date of Black Friday?
The date of Black Friday changes each year. This year, Black Friday lands on Friday, November 29.
But like many other retail holidays, Black “Friday” really starts a few days, or even earlier at some stores, before the real event. The high anticipation for deals is enough to make retailers launch their sales early.
That’s probably better for shoppers anyway. It means they have extra time to shop the countless online sales at their leisure, rather than try to cram all their shopping into one hectic day.
