Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade starts and stores offer sells the Friday after Thanksiving
Philadelphia Police Department calls the day after Thanksgiving Black Friday — because of traffic jams and overcrowded sidewalks — as downtown stores offer discounted prices for shoppers.
In 1939, the Retail Dry Goods Association warned Franklin Roosevelt that if the holiday season wouldn't begin until after Americans celebrated Thanksgiving on the traditional final Thursday in November, retail sales would go in the tank.
retailers found a way to reinvent Black Friday and turn it into something that reflected positively, rather than negatively, on them and their customers.
