Will Black Friday Become "Black November"?

Reuters/NBC News

Black Friday may soon be a thing of the past on the High Plains, as in the rest of the country.

As NBC News reports, Black Friday is slowly being replaced by what many retailers are referring to as “Black November.” And some of the deals that consumers have come to expect on Friday are already available. For example, Amazon launched its Black Friday store last Tuesday.

The Black November idea allows consumers to spread their spending out over a longer period. This is good news for cash-strapped shoppers, and those who simply want to relax and enjoy Thanksgiving and December with family. Products that are already available at sharply reduced prices include laptops, beauty products, and wedding dresses.

Sara Skirboll is a shopping and trends expert at RetailMeNot. She says shopping before Friday means skipping the crowds and less stress.
