When is Black Friday 2021?
Black Friday starts every year on the day after Thanksgiving, and this year it’s Friday, November 26. Black Friday has long been considered as the “kickoff” to the holiday shopping season, and retailers used to only offer one-day deals until recent years, when they’ve extended their Black Friday deals through Black Friday weekend, which is on November 26-28, 2021 this year.
Black Friday weekend is known as one of the the busiest shopping days of the year, and new data from Adobe’s 2021 Holiday Shopping Forecast predict online sales over those three days to top $36 billion. Make sure to get your lists ready.
