Holiday Sales Reporting Kicks into High Gear
By: Ina Steiner
Wall Street Journal (Paid subscription required) says the Monday after Thanksgiving in the U.S. is called Black Monday, or Cyber Monday. While brick-and-mortar stores experience tremendous sales the day after Thanksgiving (called Black Friday), apparently consumers returning to work the following Monday throw on the computer and do some shopping.
And from my editorial in Sunday's newsletter:
Frank Barnako had an interesting column about sites that reveal "Black Friday" sales. Black Friday, of course, is the day after Thanksgiving in the U.S., when retailers kick off the holiday hype with incredible sales. You can read the article at (http://digbig.com/4fhys). If you're brave enough to hit the malls on Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year, you may be able to pick up some bargains for resale, although retailers typically limit the number of items you can purchase.
