Could Cyber Monday Be Giving Way to Cyber Thursday?
The first Monday after Thanksgiving never has been the biggest online shopping day of the year for most retailers. But Cyber Monday, as it is known, has traditionally served as the official start to the online holiday shopping season.
This Cyber Monday isn’t likely to be either the beginning or the biggest day for holiday shopping – but that’s likely all good news for online retail.
Early data from the extended holiday weekend show that few people were waiting until they returned to work to do their online shopping. Instead, they started right after eating Thanksgiving dinner.
