Black Friday Online Sales to Exceed Cyber Monday

Retail experts are predicting an unusual holiday shopping trend  for this year – that Black Friday will blow the doors off Cyber Monday  when it comes to electronics. Shelley Bransten with Salesforce says this prediction is based on insights from 500-million global shoppers across 53 countries.

Bransten says that while Black Friday has traditionally been the big  "store day," now shoppers are purchasing more items from their desktops  and mobile phones. Bransten adds that the stakes have raised for  retailers and they are realizing that consumers demand the efficiency  and convenience of digital shopping.

Looking ahead, December 11th will also be a great discount  day. By December 3rd about half of Americans are going to have their  holiday shopping done and by December 5th about 80% of Americans will have their shopping done.
