Black Friday Is Family And Friends Shopping Affair

Consumers expected to go on £1.97 billion Black Friday spending spree

"There's stuff they've seen", Moore said about shopping for her daughters since past year.

The toys typically cost around $70, but the secondary market online is already selling them for much more.

"I came previous year and discovered sales are better than online", she said.

Even before some Americans had finished with their Thanksgiving Day meals, people were lining up - some even camping - outside stores, ready to take advantage of Black Friday shopping deals. "We can't wait to join the excitement of what has become a favorite holiday tradition for many of our guests when we open our doors to greet them at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving". Walmart has made major investments in its app recently, and the retailer chose to offer certain deals exclusively via app for the first time ever this year.

"It was a really good start".

Daniels, the Best Buy shopper, was optimistic about the effect Donald Trump's presidency might have on the economy.

Shoppers will spend an estimated 51 percent of their holiday budgets this weekend via e-commerce, according to a survey by consulting firm Deloitte. During the two-day sale nearly all items online and in stores will be 15 percent off.

The National Retail Federation, the nation's largest retail group, expects holiday sales to rise 3.6 percent for November and December, better than the 3 percent growth seen for those months past year. That excludes vehicle sales, gas and restaurant receipts. While other shoppers may have taken advantage of retail stores opening doors on Thanksgiving Day, Powell said they made a decision to just stick with what has been kind of a family tradition.

"Normally, we stay comfy at home", she said. "I feel bad for the people who have to work".

Though most people buy at least some items online and know the same deals or better can be found there several, many Black Friday shoppers said they still want to try on clothes, shoes or household items.

Sam Glynn said it's at local shops where they will look for "cool knives and glassware, things that have meaning".

In Virginia, Dana Sari says she prefers buying gifts from online catalogues and boutique retailers rather than larger corporations, which she says value her less as a customer. Now, while Black Friday bargains are still on, Amazon rolls out its hot Cyber Monday deals on November 28; which showcases more than 75,000 deals all throughout the week. They changed the rules on Black Friday. "It brings us together even more, like an extension of the holidays".

The Seattle-based corporation added Black Friday shopping on Amazon.com is already on pace to surpass Black Friday previous year, in terms of items ordered.

Looking beyond this weekend, the National Retail Federation projects November and December retail sales - leaving out autos, gasoline and restaurants - will total to almost $656 billion, almost four percent greater than the sum of retail business from the same months past year. Warm weather also dampened shoppers' appetite for cold-weather items.

Both kinds of customers were at the Mall of America in Minnesota - which was closed on Thanksgiving this year - on Friday morning.

"Pictures don't always do an item justice", and sizing can vary widely from brand to brand, said Kyra Hall, a 39- year-old who was shopping with her cousin Lisa Hall at a mall in Columbia, Md. We're going to start with the big guy himself, Santa is here through Christmas Eve. "I may shop for another two hours".
