Black Friday has always been the biggest and the busiest shopping day of the year until Cyber Monday was introduced in 2005 when the use of the internet was booming and online clothing stores sales was booming too. Since there were long lines in stores, some shoppers look for other ways to get their Christmas shopping done and found it easier to do online. Thus, the internet created a new way to engage shoppers who are looking for the same Black Friday sales and deals without the hassle and stress and long queues.
Online shopping has continuously grown over the years and it has been reported that November 2010 alone saw $13.6 billion dollars of e-commerce form US consumers. The Cyber Monday became the biggest online shopping day with $1.03 billion dollars spent by consumers.
This year, online shopping is expected to be busiest on Monday as it gets ready for cyber Monday. While brick stores and malls will have Black Friday sales, the cyber frenzy is projected on all online clothing stores. Online shoppers spent more than a billion dollars on Cyber Monday last year and it is estimated that online shopping this year will continue to grow as millions of consumers are expected to scour the internet for bargains, sales and promos while buying for their Christmas gifts.
More are expected to log in to their accounts in their favorite online clothing stores or electronic stores especially as the ability to shop online now fits our pocket. It has been said that more people are shopping online using their smartphones rather than desktops. It is estimated that more people will be using their mobile devices to bargain-hunt from the different online clothing stores and all other favorite online stores.
Whether you intend to brace the crowd on Black Friday or have a relaxing shopping experience on Cyber Monday, make it worthwhile by being ready and thus spending only for the really important and necessary items and of course the best deals. The beauty of online shopping is that you can compare the different prices of even one item from different online stores and so you can get the best prices.
