Our BFCM shopping weekend is coming to an end… about 10 minutes left before Cyber Monday is over here on the east coast. We've officially hit records for best Black Friday sales ever, best Cyber Monday sales and best overall BFCM weekend sales. Not by much, but considering all the news about customer sentiment and lower expectations on holiday shopping, and our own trends so far this year, we were cautious in our estimates and planned on sales being down slightly. This is definitely a welcome surprise.
I'm curious how everyone's sales are doing… are you up compared to last year? Down? About the same? How do you think the rest of the season will go?
