Black Friday 2016 falls on Friday 25th November 2016. The day after Thanksgiving.
Most of the sane shoppers who don’t want to wait at Walmart at midnight and risk being crushed by a zealous mob – these shoppers wait for Cyber Monday. Typically people go back to work and are looking to hoover up those online Christmas bargains from the comfort of their desk or smart phone.
Cyber Monday is on 28th November 2016. As we’ve seen in high street retail, stores are broadening the bounds of the date by opening up stores earlier to get ahead of the wave of shopping. The same thing is happening on-line with cyber week being a festival of consumer deals, gradually meted out of a longer buying period.
