Biggest Holiday Season To Date?
While most Americans are running around supermarkets trying to prepare for this year’s Thanksgiving, people already have their sights on the events that follow: Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Stores all over the country will open up as early as 4 a.m. to accommodate shoppers looking to purchase that prized gift for the holidays. For those that prefer shopping online, Cyber Monday is the ideal day where one doesn’t even have to leave the house to get the deals they’re looking for.
According to Adobe Digital Insights and Forbes.com, they’re predicting that 2016 will be a strong year for holiday sales.
For starters, ADI believes that Black Friday will be “bigger than ever” with sales expected to exceed $3 billion, which is a 11.5% increase over last year. Cyber Monday is also predicted to have similar results with sales of $3 billion, but their increase will “only” be 9.4%.
