Black Friday has evolved over the years. Once upon a time, if you wanted to score a Black Friday deal, you had to wait in line outside a store overnight. When the doors opened, you had to scramble, scratch, and (sometimes!) fist-fight to get your hands on the best deal. Now, we live in an era of Amazon gifts and online “doorbusters” thanks to the World Wide Web. We broke down a brief history of Black Friday below (pro tip: if you’re just here for the deals, scroll down!).
Ever since retailers took to the Internet, though, the way we shop for holiday gifts and self-indulgent treats hasn’t been the same. Unless you just enjoy the thrill of the deal (and 71% of shoppers still do!), you can now stay inside and enjoy Black Friday savings from your couch.
