Black Friday Starts Holiday Shopping Season With A Bang

Nov 26, 2012

Black Friday’s long lines and mega bargains draw out early morning shoppers every year the day after Thanksgiving, and this year some stores even opened as early as Thursday night.

Black Friday gets its moniker for helping businesses go into the black or positive revenue.  And this past weekend was no exception.   John Fleming, with the Florida Retail Federation, says retail stores make anywhere from 20 to 40 percent of their annual sales during the holiday season.  He said this weekend went well for Florida.
