Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days of the year -- and with good reason. Most stores offer sales that cannot be beat, and it is the perfect time to buy a loved one their Christmas gift without breaking the bank.
According to ShopperTrak, in 2011, consumers spent 11.4 billion on Black Friday.
ShopperTrak founder Bill Martin said in a statement, “This is the largest year-over-year gain in ShopperTrak’s National Retail Sales Estimate for Black Friday since the 8.3 percent increase we saw between 2007 and 2006.” The research firm expects sales to do exceedingly well once again this year.
