Saving money is always a good reason to celebrate. That’s why we have Black Friday in July. For which we actually have Jeff Bezos to thank and the marketing brains behind the first Amazon Prime Day just five short years ago in July 2015. Other major retailers were quick to jump on the bandwagon to compete with Prime Day, and hence, Black Friday in July officially became a thing. (Little known fact: Best Buy and Target actually used the phrase “Black Friday in July” to refer to summer sales as far back as 2012. Talk about ancient history. LOL.)
Just two short years later, in 2017, Black Friday in July was extensively covered by the media, thus solidifying it as an official shopping holiday. And where, might you ask, did the term “Black Friday” itself come from? Historians believe the name started in Philadelphia in the mid-1960s when bus drivers and police used it to describe the heavy traffic that clogged city streets the day after Thanksgiving as shoppers headed to stores. (Interested in other fun facts and stats about Black Friday in July? Here’s a brief history.)
