Black Friday has long been known as the biggest shopping day in America. It gets its name from the fact that this is the magical day on which retail sales are so huge, even retailers who are having bad years tend to finally reach profitable status when the dust settles on the end of this Day-After-Thanksgiving shopping frenzy.
The 2015 Black Friday, however, will also be remembered, by hundreds of thousands of people, as the year in which their trip to downtown Chicago was interrupted by obnoxious protesters. The demonstrations on Friday, November 27, 2015 were so overwhelming that Michigan Avenue was impassible for hours, keeping shoppers from their destinations in stores, restaurants, transportation, and entertainment venues.
Now, an important thing to note is that the demonstrators are happy with this.
