Why You Can Save BIG on Black Friday and Cyber Monday
If you're not from the U.S., you may be wondering: What exactly is Black Friday? Or Cyber Monday? And how does Thanksgiving come into play?
In short, Black Friday is the day after the American Thanksgiving holiday (the 4th Thursday in November) when shoppers traditionally flood into retail stores (or browse online) to start holiday shopping.
To compete for these customers, retailers offer big discounts on Black Friday - but many merchants now extend the sales throughout all of the week. Online vendors vie for shoppers with their own large discounts on Cyber Monday, the first day of the following week - but as part of the general grab for customers, online sales start well before Thanksgiving as well.
Over the past couple of decades, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become the most important sales period of the year for savvy shoppers as brands around the world offer the discounts.

Sometimes you have to move fast to grab the best Black Friday savings.

Are Black Friday Sales Banned in France?
Black Friday sales have been a topic of controversy in France since they first appeared in 2013 because of concerns that they glorify consumerism and wasteful over-consumption that contributes to endangering the planet while encouraging the underpayment of laborers, manufacturers, and independent retailers.
A movement underway in France seeks to ban these sales because they lead to wasteful over-consumption. Charges have also been made that Black Friday "discounts" in French retail stores aren't usually any lower than prices available at other times during the year. In 2019, the French Parliament outlawed any advertising of Black Friday sales or discounts in France, and hundreds of retailers and brands boycotted Black Friday.
So the current status is that while stores can't advertise in France about their Black Friday sales, they can still discretely hold them and even display signs in their windows, and of course shoppers can also buy online from international companies that do advertise Black Friday deals. Stay tuned for possibly more developments next year!
Update: Last year, 600 brands boycotted Black Friday, and four major French retailers are advocating for banning these sales in France. So continue to stay tuned!
Unadvertised Black Friday Sales & Bargains in Paris
Finally, if you're lucky enough to be in Paris during the Black Friday period (or are in the process of planning a visit), keep in mind that many local stores will be featuring some terrific markdowns, discounts, and sales to entice early holiday shoppers - even if they're not labeled "Black Friday Soldes."
Although Thanksgiving may be a U.S. celebration (and Canadian, too, in October), Black Friday sales around the time of the American holiday have become a global tradition - so don't miss this opportunity to stock up on French fashion and home goods!
