Black Friday – Nothing New

Black Friday love it or hate it, it’s just a way to drum up Christmas sales. The concept is nothing new though. In 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt attempted to move the official Thanksgiving date to earlier in November to encourage a longer Christmas shopping season as a Depression recovery strategy. His idea was shut down by Congress, and the official date was declared permanently as the fourth Thursday in November via Public Law #379. So today we have Black Friday.

I do not know about you, but my idea of shopping is an internet connection and a credit card. I do not have to fight the crowds and all the traffic. Being an engineer enamored the details of the product, I can find more information on the web than from some part time clerk working the aisles.

You can shop for your compressed air products on EXAIR’s website. There you will find specifications on all our products, you can download 2D drawings or 3D models, catalog pages, etc. from our Knowledge Base. If you need assistance, we have a team of Application Engineers available by phone 1-800-903-9247, email or  by live chat – click the chat button in upper left corner.

I am an application engineer and would be happy to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.
