Sleep Comfort - still doing "black" whatever

Ah so "black" Friday/November/whatever else is still going it seems. And so here we are - Sleep Comfort is announcing major sale using that gimmick. I have spoken prior about how we imported the black Friday thingy without the accompanying "thanksgiving" and how this ushered the Christmas sales period (here). Interestingly, I just read an article (here) about how people have switched back to essentials and how many businesses are shuttering, including the HORECA (Hotels, Restaurants, Cafes) sector which has been hit (again) - I have written about this prior (here):

"Also, according to figures - whereas more than 500 HORECA (hotels/restaurants/cafe) establishments closed down following the explosion of 2020, figures indicate that in the last few months 280 new restaurants have popped up in Beirut as of late. Batroun is now booming with restaurants, guesthouses, and other assortment of touristic establishments."

And so now we are back to the yo-yo game again what's with the Palestine repercussions on Lebanon are causing. Especially with the Christmas season coming and many people/businesses were relying on it for an influx of cash.
