Smartphones sales break all record this year. Cyber Monday sales will be even bigger than Black Friday sales, experts say.
And this is only the start, as online holiday spending is expected to reach $107 billion in sales - that's a 14 percent increase over 2016, reports CNBC.
Apparel retailer Gap, which has already been called out by multiple analysts over the weekend for the strength of its Old Navy and Banana Republic Black Friday deals, saw its stock climb almost 3 percent Monday morning. By 5 p.m. ET on Thanksgiving, shoppers had spent more than $1.52 billion, up 16.8 percent from past year, CNBC reported.
According to Ipsos Retail Performance, UK footfall on Black Friday was up 0.95 per cent year-on-year, with 42 per cent of retailers experiencing footfall growth.Читайте также: The history of Christmas Trees
But Brian Field, senior director of advisory services for ShopperTrak, is optimistic. Shoppers started lining up as early as 5:45 p.m. on Thanksgiving.
There were plenty of crowds on Black Friday, but the shoppers that stayed home and took advantage of online sales is on the rise, CNN reported.
While sales boomed online, purchases at malls and large retailers remained strong, CNN reported.
Experts believe both days totals will fall once the weekend comes to an end and the public charges head-on into the brick and mortar Christmas shopping season.
Cyber Monday is now expected to mark the biggest online shopping day in US history, according to Adobe Insights, which measures 80 percent of digital transactions from 100 major retailers.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
