96.5 Million Americans Shopping On Cyber Monday [Survey]
The National Retail Federation conducted a survey that predicts that about 96.5 million Americans will be shopping online today. This is up from 85 million last year. Over the past weekend, millions of people went shopping on websites generating $595 million in just online total sales.
“Shoppers proved this weekend that they were willing to open their wallets for a bargain, heading out to take advantage of great deals on less expensive items like toys, small appliances, and winter clothes,” stated NRF President and CEO Tracy Mullin in a press release. “While retailers are encouraged by the number of Americans who shopped over Black Friday weekend, they know they have their work cut out for them to keep people coming back through Christmas.”
