Black Friday sales topped $1 billion for the first time ever last week. And sales hit $59 billion from the Thursday to Sunday period, up almost 13% from a year ago.
Cyber Monday boasts even bigger growth this year, though. Yesterday, online sales blasted 30.3% higher over last year, according to IBM (NYSE: IBM).
Indeed, as Patti Freeman Evans of Forrester Research says, “We continue to see stronger and stronger growth from online, whereas the offline counterpart is relatively flat, so retail is growing overall, but a lot of the growth is coming from internet sales.”
No surprise there.
