Description

Black Friday (BF) has been studied as a consumption event (Thomas & Peters, 2011) and as a site for consumer misbehavior (Lennon, Johnson, & Lee, 2011). BF is a unique shopping event (Thomas & Peters, 2011); most major retailers participate with extended hours and doorbuster promotions. Since the goal of promotions is to make people want things (Anderson & Bushman, 2002), BF promotions may incentivize consumer misbehavior on BF.
