Yep, it’s that time of year again folks, so dust off that football, deep fry that bird, and most importantly…lose that lame old knitted cap before your in-laws arrive, and lets get down to the real Thanksgiving business – shopping for great Black Friday furniture deals.
Who doesn’t love black Friday, right? (Well, unless you happen to be employed by Wal-Mart or some such, and are routinely called in for “crowd control” duties halfway through your thanksgiving dinner…) By and large, Black Friday is a win-win for all involved, great deals for consumers, unprecedented traffic for retailers, and a chance for repressed single moms to release some aggression while engaged in a battle to death over the last “Shmop” in aisle seven…
The name “Black Friday” originated in Philadelphia, where it was originally used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic which would occur on the day after Thanksgiving. Use of the term started before 1961 and began to see broader use outside Philadelphia around 1975. Later an alternative explanation began to be offered: that “Black Friday” indicates the point at which retailers begin to turn a profit, or are “in the black”.
Either way, Black Friday is the perfect opportunity for those of you who would like to knock off a few of your dream items from your furniture wish list (a thing no respectable homeowner should ever be without, am I right!?) and finally get that “above budget” item you have been eying for months, and wait, it get’s better, thanks to the internet and online retail superstores like Madison Seating, you can do it all without ever leaving your home! I know it may mean giving up that once a year opportunity to get elbowed in the face by otherwise neighborly people as you charge through the panicked crowds, but hey, you could always try sneaking up behind your little brother and poking him in the back, the net result should be the same…
On a more serious note, shopping online for great “Black Friday” furniture deals, is a wonderful alternative to the hassle of navigating the savage crowds and a obvious way to optimize your effort – return ratio.
Needless to say, there may not be a more comprehensive and wallet friendly online shopping destination on the web then our very own Madison Seating.
