Amazon is killing Black Friday
As Prime Day grows in popularity, shoppers' interest in Black Friday has been waning. Last year, about 154 million customers shopped in store and online over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, down from 226 million in 2011, according to the National Retail Federation.
Wake up at 4:30 am, drive to the shopping mall, and jockey for position among hundreds, or thousands, of other "bargain hunters" just to save 30% on toys, small appliances, or televisions?
I'm happy to see that society is choosing to sleep in on a Friday after Thanksgiving and do their shopping online in their pajamas.
