Retail experts say Americans will likely spend $1.6 billion on Cyber Monday 2012, a 20 percent increase with about 25 percent of the shoppers using tablets.
Once all of those online purchases are completed after Cyber Monday each year, there’s a surge in activity for mail carriers across the country.
After spenidng months focused on the economy, Black Friday Weekend puts an entirely different spin on the issue. But is it a spin in the right direction?
Not all Black Friday sales are created equal. For the last couple of weeks we’ve been reporting on stores opening earlier than ever. For example, Walmart and Toys-R-Us are both opening at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving while Target opens at 9 p.m.
Cyber Monday is oftentimes a more popular shopping event than Black Friday. The convenience of shopping at home without the hassles of the lines and throngs of people can be a huge draw. However, it’s important to know which sites are the best for deals, quality and ease in online shopping.
Cyber Monday was up at least 20 percent from a year ago. It’s an encouraging start to the shopping season, but it may not last, according to a Denver expert.
