When Target, Walmart, Best Buy and More Will Be Open

Note: For the latest deals, be sure to check our our early Black Friday liveblog for the best ways to save.

Black Friday starts tomorrow, and that means it’s time to start planning. While many people’s first instinct is to shop Black Friday deals online, you may prefer to snag your gifts in person. 

To help you get ready for the biggest shopping event of the season, we’ve looked at the top retailers in America and put together a guide on when they’ll be open this Thanksgiving and Black Friday.

While most major chains will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, some stores will be open as early as 5 a. m. the following morning. We’ll be updating this list as more retailers announce dates.

When is Black Friday 2022?

This year, Black Friday falls on November 25, the day following Thanksgiving in the United States. Most stores open earlier and close later than usual on Black Friday, giving you more time to shop.

Is it better to shop Black Friday deals online or in-store?

Although Black Friday and Cyber Monday used to be entirely separate events, they’ve grown nearly synonymous over the last few years. At this point, it’s rare to find a store that offers different deals on Black Friday than they do on Cyber Monday.

In recent years, we’ve seen Black Friday savings start earlier than ever. If you’re shopping online, you could start hunting for deals right now.

Unless you need to try your purchases out before buying — say, if you’re looking at clothes — you’re better off buying online.

But no matter which option you choose, keep in mind that there are real people working to process your orders. Be mindful and patient with the workers around the country racing to fulfill Black Friday requests, whether they’re behind a counter or in a warehouse. After all, they deserve a peaceful holiday season too.

ENGLISH VOCABULARY – EnglishPapa on vc.ru

views

Already soon, on November 25, we will again have “Black Friday”: discounts, promotions and the best deals. Online stores are also joining the big sale, so you can safely try your luck on foreign sites. And so that you don’t get confused in terms, we have prepared a selection of vocabulary in English for Black Friday.

What is Black Friday

Initially, “Black Friday” appeared in the United States. On this day, the season of big sales begins, timed to coincide with the start of preparations for the celebration of Christmas. Catholic Christmas is celebrated on December 25th. And Black Friday starts the day after Thanksgiving because Americans usually have a long weekend at that time.

Later, the idea of ​​big sales spread to other countries. And other days of big sales have also appeared: Cyber ​​Monday, Black November, when the discount season starts on the first of November.

Participate in a large-scale campaign and ordinary stores, and online sites. In order to correctly navigate in all the variety of offers, you need to understand what exactly they offer you. And the vocabulary in this topic can be specific and incomprehensible to those who have encountered Black Friday for the first time.

Black Friday: popular words and phrases for shopping

BOGO – buy one, get one / 1+1 promotion. If the ad says that BOGO is 50% off, that means that when you buy one item, you can get a second one for half the price.

Cyber ​​Monday It’s the Monday closest to Black Friday. Usually on this day, the maximum discounts for purchases in online stores.

Cyber ​​sale Low prices are only available online, if you buy in a regular store, the price will be higher.

Doorbuster deal/doorbuster savings/early bird specials Low prices for people who shop in advance. If the store opens at 8:00, the store may have super low prices until 9:00. Pay attention to ads to find out the hours when low prices are set.

Exclusions – goods without discount (exclusion). Some ads say something like: 40-60% off everything in the store!! Some exclusions apply (40-60% discount on everything in the store!! There are exceptions).

Lay-away – reservation of goods until full payment. When you issue a loan or installment plan, you immediately take the goods home after registration. When you reserve a product, it is postponed to you and given after full payment.

219021 limited trace minerals

Hurry up to buy the goods, because due to the limited quantity, it can end quickly.

Night owl deals/specials – special offers for shopping in the evening and at night. In this case, the low prices are valid after a certain hour in the evening. On weekday evenings, the flow of customers decreases, everyone wants to quickly get home after work. Therefore, stores arrange promotions for evening shopping in order to attract people.

Price match – the action “We will reduce the price if you find it cheaper.” Stores will sell you something at a lower price if you can prove that another store sells it at a lower price. For example, you see a $50 toy in Store N, but you receive an email ad from Store M saying that the same toy is $45. You can show an ad in N and they will sell you this toy for $45.

Rain check – coupon for a product at a reduced price after the end of the sale. Let’s say you saw a teapot at a discounted price, but by the time of purchase all the teapots were over, and a new arrival is expected only in a week, when the sale is already over. In this case, stores sometimes give out coupons for the purchase of this item at a reduced price when it becomes available again.

Red dot clearance – promotion “red price tag”. To draw attention to discounted products, price tags can be made in different colors. Most often choose red. Different colors can also be used for different denominations of discounts: 30% – blue, 40% – yellow.

Sold out – sold out. This product is no longer available. Do not forget to clarify about the rain check, suddenly you are lucky.

Steal is a very good deal. The basic meaning of the word steal is to steal. That is, the price of the product is so low that it seems to you that you are getting it for free, practically “stealing” from the store.

Black Friday: vocabulary about customers

Several objects and subjects participate in trade: goods, sellers, buyers. And each has its own terms, interesting words and expressions. You will now understand what the advertising inscriptions and indications on the price tags on Black Friday mean. And the following phrases will help you maintain and understand the conversation when discussing shopping at sales:

  • bedlam
  • frenzy – frenzy, a state of excitement and anxiety when you cannot control what you do, for example, Black Friday frenzy / black Friday frenzy;
  • extravaganza – extravaganza, large-scale and exciting event or entertainment, for example, the sales extravaganza / sale extravaganza;
  • consumerism – consumerism; the cult of consumerism; a checkout is a cash desk, for example in this context: a surprise at a checkout / surprise at the checkout;
  • to snap up – snap up, usually about a scarce product;
  • to forgo – refuse something, refrain from something;
  • a bargain hunter
  • to grab a bargain – make a good deal, make a bargain;
  • to cut prices – reduce prices;
  • the sales/marketing gimmick is a sales ploy/marketing gimmick designed to get attention in order to persuade someone to buy something.

In 2018, some shops witnessed scenes of bedlam over sales. – In 2018, some stores experienced real bedlam due to sales.

People who are upset about consumerism are pledging to spend no money at all during the Black Friday. “People who are dissatisfied with consumerism promise not to spend money at all during Black Friday.

Free samples are sales gimmicks. “Free samples are a publicity stunt.

Happy shopping on Black Friday everyone!

When is World Black Friday?

This year’s massive worldwide Black Friday sale will take place on November 25th. Traditionally, all popular brands and chains will take part in it. Discounts on this day will reach unprecedented sizes – from 30 to 90%. Thus, Black Friday 2022 is a unique opportunity to buy household appliances or branded clothes at a ridiculous price.

Black Friday is an American tradition that has taken the world by storm

Curiously, the term “Black Friday” does not live up to its grim name. For shopaholics and sellers, the worldwide sale is a real treat.

Black Friday originated on the US East Coast. This is the name given to the Friday after Thanksgiving, which is celebrated on the last Thursday of November. On this day, the New Year sales started. And on Black Friday, the discounts were the largest. Gradually, the tradition of organizing a November sale spread throughout the world. It is beneficial both to buyers, who can buy expensive goods at discounted prices, and to sellers. It would seem, what is the benefit of stores? In fact, they kill three birds with one stone:

  • provide a large flow of customers – discounts attract a record number of people;
  • draw attention to the brand – Black Friday is an excellent advertising move, often manufacturers even time the release of new lines to coincide with it;
  • get rid of stale goods – the latest single sizes of clothes or the only smartphone of a certain series in the store can be bought at a ridiculous price.

In the US, it is considered bad manners to return an item purchased on Black Friday. This is another huge plus for sellers.

Black Friday is impatiently awaited in America. Some shopaholics even take days off. Shops open in the morning – sometimes at 5:00. By this time, a large number of people accumulate in front of the entrance. Some shops open at midnight.

Black Friday has taken root well in Europe, including Ukraine. But here it is more restrained. Nevertheless, the sale attracts a lot of people.

Term controversy

The phrase “Black Friday” first appeared in Philadelphia at 1966 year. There are three versions of its origin:

  • Black Friday was called black by the police, who had to work after hours. On this day, the residents of the city, who were in a hurry for sales, created huge traffic jams. The police could hardly cope with them, and they called this day black.
  • Huge crowds formed in the stores. Often people get injured in them.
