The real reason we shop on Black Friday

Bargains aren’t the only reason people shop on Black Friday,  a consumer psychologist told Popular Science. But if it’s not for the deals and steals, why else do we feel the need to fight the crowds?

Because in some families, it’s the only post-Thanksgiving activity they can agree on, said Kit Yarrow, a consumer psychologist at Golden Gate University.

She said the Thanksgiving weekend brings together people who wouldn’t normally spend much time together by choice, and shopping is something everyone can do.

There’s also the element of tradition, she said. People shop on Black Friday because that’s what they’ve always done.

According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), nearly 70 percent of Americans, about 164 million people, plan to shop during the period spanning from Thanksgiving Day to Cyber Monday, spending an average of $967, per USA Today.
