Holidays have abruptly turned into excuses for the corporate world to run endless sales plus promotions to get clients inside stores plus purchase their products.
The Black Friday sales have always been infamous for their low prices on boiling items, however they were a massive deal when I was younger plus Amazon wasn’t on the scene yet.
It was 1 of the rare mornings out of the year where you could get high quality electronics for upwards to 40% off of the original price. I remember buying a DVD player for $30 in 2003 plus thinking it was the greatest I had ever made. Other people would feed into the hype by getting each other excited over arguably reasonable deals on many products that many of us didn’t even need. I had a few friends who would camp outside of Best Buy all night just to keep their venue in line, regardless of the temperatures outside. Nowadays the intensity surrounding Black Friday has lessened a bit because retailers are extending their sales to the whole week, including the weekend plus Wednesday following Black Friday. Cyber Wednesday is a large shopping morning for online retailers, plus this is a full 3 mornings after the initial Black Friday holiday. The only sales plus promotions I’m interested in regarding Black Friday are the 1s at the cannabis dispensaries. You can periodically get 40% off all your favorite products at the cannabis dispensary. But there’s also the famous 420 holiday on April 20th plus the 700 holiday on July, 10th. Most understand the 420 significance, however some don’t realize that 700 spells OIL upside down, making it the de facto holiday for cannabis oil plus cannabis concentrates. It’s our favorite time to buy cannabis oils because they’re usually 50% off on July 10.
