Black Friday Diminishing In Importance?

Old Cash Register

Anyone else getting the feeling that Black Friday…has lost its punch?

To me, it started when Cyber Monday came on the scene.  Then, in the last couple of years, Black Friday sales started to impinge upon Thursday.  And people don’t want things messing with their turkey.

So when you start to see news reports or articles on either the apparent success or failure of Black Friday and the kickoff of the holiday sales season, take it with a grain of salt.  Actually, you will probably end up ignoring them altogether after reading this article from FiveThirtyEight.  They spell out a number of reasons why the data you hear about this weekend is dead wrong.

For instance, MasterCard says the busiest shopping day last year…way above Black Friday.  So way to go, slackers.

How do you get it done? —->
