Black Friday is considered one of the distinctive “holidays” of the American economy, as huge sales are offered at this time, over which people fight each other every year, and from which stores manage to generate huge revenues. For many years, the world outside America has watched with amusement, but with horror, the scenes of people hitting each other on a television screen or console.
But this year you can’t see anything like that, there were no people standing in the parking lots and no crowds in the shops.
The discounts in October and November took away the excitement of Black Friday. On social media, more and more people are claiming that they cannot spend as much money as they used to if they wanted to, because there simply isn’t any left, with many consumers being hit hard by ongoing inflation.
Some reports said that at 6 a.m. on Friday morning, the parking lot of a Walmart in New Milford, Connecticut, was completely closed. It was half full. The crowd at Garden State Plaza in Paramus, New Jersey, was smaller than in previous years. Stores have also given up on Black Friday because they can’t offer as many discounts as they have for years. Many stores have turned to online stores or online sales in recent years.
Many people complain that while discounts in the past ranged between 50 and 75 percent, today they reach a maximum of 5 to 15 percent.
Many commenters also complain that years ago they still had money to shop on Black Friday, but now they’re happy to pay their bills.
US economic measures did not work at all. Joe Biden was unable to fulfill any of his campaign promises.
