The Black Market…A Black Friday Alternative

Black Friday

A Black Friday Alternative…

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is touted as the biggest and most important retail shopping day of the year. Black Friday sees retailers pulling out all the stops to woo customers to their stores each year.

Yet, there has been some backlash against the concept of Black Friday, with naysayers arguing that retailers are overworking their employees, taking advantage of customers and more. And, some retailers started their “Black Friday” promotions and sales as much as two weeks before the actual day, as if they are trying to stretch it out from one day to an entire season of Black Fridays.

The Black Market is an experience designed to provide exposure to and for a diverse collection of Black businesses and encourage entrepreneurship in Black communities.
