MBA1926 Why We Stopped Doing Black Friday

Sometimes, you have to go the other way.

Black Friday & Cyber Monday have become almost like holidays unto themselves. The only problem? The “tradition” of trampling each other for discount blenders or sending Amazon fulfillment centers into apocalypse mode isn’t right for every business.
