When someone says “Black Friday” we normally think of giant crowds clogging shopping malls, shoppers camping outside their favorite stores in order to be the first in, doorbusters and ginormous discounts. But this year, most shoppers will be lounging on their couches with a coffee and laptop.
Why? The Covid-19 pandemic is forcing more and more activities to take place online, and shopping is not an exception. Many stores are implementing some mask, hygiene, and distance rules, along with temperature checks to keep employees and customers safer. Others have simply closed their physical fronts and moved entirely online.
