November 22, 2020
It’s officially time to go holiday shopping: Yes, Black Friday is already around the corner. There’s no doubt that we’ve had a crazy year so far, which has probably left some Californians wondering whether Black Friday is canceled. The answer is: absolutely not. We might even go so far as to say that Black Friday shopping has never been better. The things we like least about the eventful day—long lines, packed stores, arguments over who grabbed an item first—are virtually impossible due to COVID-19 safety guidelines. With a bigger focus on online shopping, 2020 is going to be a game-changing year for shoppers in California and beyond.
When is Black Friday?
The day after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year worldwide. Black Friday 2020 falls on November 27 this year (in some cases, sales begin on Thanksgiving). Keep in mind, however, that Black Friday shopping deals often extend throughout the weekend, leading up to Cyber Monday and the rest of Cyber Week.
