Decades before the phrase Black Friday became associated with Thanksgiving, people have used the day after the holiday to begin their shopping. (It became official in the 1950s after Philadelphia police used the term to describe the rise in shoppers.) Nowadays, Black Friday is tied to super sales from companies like Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. But even smaller brands have begun to offer their own deals on that day.
