Will Black Friday be still crowded in a pandemic?

Did you know that it’s Black Friday on November 27th? Black Friday is not an official holiday, it is actually the busiest day of the year for most people to go shopping! Furthermore, what is so great about Black Friday? Black Friday refers to  shoppers that created violence, such as traffic accidents around the holidays in the 1950s. Yet, Black Friday started to gain more prevalence since it came after Thanksgiving. Soon becoming a focus in a year, in which retailers earn more of their profit and begin to take it on a positive meaning. 

Black Friday has been widespread throughout different countries besides the United States, retailers at this moment offer substantial amounts of discounts only available during Black Friday. Unfortunately, Black Friday in 2020 may look so different from past years because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is because most customers are planning  to do their holiday shoppings online. Still, big markets such as Best Buy, Walmart, and Target in the United States are trying to continue the sales for the Black Friday shoppers. Furthermore, in South Korea, several stores such as Olive Young and other shopping malls have started their extensive discounts on Black Friday and probably most would plan to do cross-border shopping from companies like Amazon. How about planning for this year’s Black Friday and enjoying the rest of the holidays!
