Black Friday shopping

Monday, November 29, 2010

Shoppers started early on Black Friday in Cherokee as they took advantage of holiday specials at area retailers like K-Mart. The term "Black Friday" was coined in the 1960s to mark the kickoff to the Christmas shopping season. "Black" refers to stores moving from the "red" to the "black," back when accounting records were kept by hand, and red ink indicated a loss, and black a profit. Photo by Mike Leckband
