Hearing discounts of up to 80%, the public flocked to the shops and life in Philadelphia came to a standstill when thousands of tourists came to the city for the army-navy football match. Overcrowding in the city; It caused heavy vehicle traffic, a stampede, and even the looting of stores as store employees were crushed to death. When the police officers in the city used the term “Black Friday” in their radio announcements to refer to these negative events, this day began to be called Black Friday.
Another rumor is as follows: When stores in the United States record their accounting details manually, they record profits in black and losses in red. While many stores operate at a loss (red) for most of the year, the day after Thanksgiving, too much spending results in a profit (black). That’s why the stores called this day “Black Friday”.
