Black Friday is an annual shopping discount day where retailers have big sales both online and in store. It began during the 1960s in the US. Back then, retailers used red ink to mark losses and black ink for profits. Before the festive season, retailers held a big sale in order to drive up profits and use black ink again. This is how the name Black Friday originated. Since then, it has become a global shopping event, enjoyed in countries around the world. It is a great time to begin your Christmas shopping!
The sale event falls on 23th November this year. In stores, retailers typically run the sale at least during their normal opening hours. Some retailers even open early and close late so we recommend you check your favourite stores to find out when they’ll be opening on the day. Online retailers will have special discounts only available during Black Friday, and other products on promotion in the run-up to Black Friday and across the whole weekend.

While US is the original home of the Black Friday event, other countries around the world, including Malaysia are also catching up. While in US stores are packed with shoppers for the whole day, as customers scramble for the best bargains, in Malaysia, the hype is lesser. However, it is still an excellent time to pick up a good deal. Many US brands that are operating in Malaysia offer attractive deals, such as the popular make-up store Sephora. In 2016 the international shopping site Ezbuy offered discounts on shipping from the US, and it is likely such retailers will offer similar discounts this year too.
