Black Friday Sharp Gains Mean Record Cyber Monday
Written by 

e-commerceSo far, it is not a black Friday nor will it likely be a "turkey" of a Cyber Monday this e-commerce-holiday season as comScore today reported for the holiday season-to-date, $12.7 billion has been spent online, marking a 15-percent increase versus the corresponding days last year.  Perhaps more astounding,  Black Friday (November 25) saw $816 million in online sales, making it the heaviest online spending day to date in 2011 and representing a 26-percent increase versus Black Friday 2010. Thanksgiving Day (November 24), while traditionally a lighter day for online holiday spending, achieved a strong 18-percent increase to $479 million.
