Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and at The Green Solution, we’re thankful for you, our loyal patrons. That’s why we’ll be open for your Turkey Day shopping delight! That’s right, all TGS locations will be open from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm (except for Federal Blvd@Westminster and our outlet in Silver Plume. Those two will open at 9 am and close at 4:30 pm).
And the next day, The Green Solution is here to make your Black Friday…well, green! Not only do we have the amazing offers we told you about in our Holiday Gift Guide, but we have an extremely special one-day-only offer for you. With any purchase you make this Friday (11/23/18), you can buy one of our classic Key Lime Truffles for just one cent (while supplies last)! These white chocolate and lime confections are infused with hybrid hash oil and are the perfect dessert to follow your Thanksgiving leftovers.
Now for a little history to impress your friends. The day after Thanksgiving is called “Black Friday,” but why? The myth is that it’s the first day of the year when retailers operate “in the black,” meaning the first day they make a profit. But the term actually originated in the 1950s with the frustration of the Philadelphia police. Philadelphia’s Finest were overwhelmed by the crowds that swarmed into the city to shop and attend the annual Army-Navy football game. Keeping the peace required every cop to work on the day after Thanksgiving, so the day came to be known as “black” (as in bad and depressing) Friday. Over the years, the day has lost its negative connotation, and today it’s just when we shop ourselves silly getting ready for the gift-giving season ahead.
