The answer is yes! Cyber Monday is an online shopping event. It was named by the United States’ National Retail Federation in 2005. It has since grown to Canada, France, Japan, Australia, India and New Zealand. Quite possibly there are more countries that have adopted this term. Needless to say, it has become an international term that everyone understands is the second busiest shopping day of the year and a part of the holiday shopping kick-off.
It seems that many people like to wait until Cyber Monday to make their holiday purchases. The old advice of waiting before you buy may be part of the reason consumers are leaving their shopping until four days after US Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Maybe they hope for a better deal. Perhaps shopping online is simply more convenient and less hectic than shopping in brick and mortar stores and dealing with traffic, lines and the craziness of shoppers. Some say that many forgo Black Friday shopping in favour of family time, thus making it are a substitute shopping day. $7.8 billion dollars was spent in 2018 on that day. The highest sales to date. Online retailers put a lot of effort and advertising in marketing their Cyber Monday promotions. When you begin Christmas shopping? Black Friday? Cyber Monday?
