Black Friday online sales hit a new record of $9 billion this year as pandemic-wary Americans filled virtual carts instead of real ones. That's a 22% increase over the previous record of $7.4 billion from 2019. Meanwhile, U.S. store visits fell by 52%.
@AP Good for some !!! Meanwhile MILLIONS OF AMERICANS can’t afford FOOD!!!!!! Ridiculous!!!!
@AP The unfortunate thing here is this means all that revenue is congregated primarily at the top, among major retailers. Small businesses will get a tiny slice of that pie.
@AP The fall in store visits gives me a little bit of hope, but it's possible that people are being lazy instead of safe.
@AP Forget store visits, a thing of the past, most importantly the $$$$$$ kept coming in, keeps the wheels turning.
