As the scattered passenger flow disappeared, some retail observers began to refer to the “black five” as “Hey five”. What’s more, it all started to show signs even before the outbreak.

But don’t assume that popular online shopping represents recession: retail sales are still expected to record this holiday season, as are the logistics companies that deliver them. < / P > < p > not everyone is the winner. Cheap department stores that don’t engage in e-commerce and expect customers to enter Taobao stores may be sad; so can small businesses without strong online businesses, although the campaign to support local merchants may help. But it’s going to be a very happy Christmas for the big retailers who are playing with online ordering and distribution. < / P > < p > according to Adobe analytics, online spending on Thursday totaled $5.1 billion, a record increase of 21.5% year-on-year, but still far below the company’s forecast of $6 billion a day earlier.

This year’s Black Friday in Europe is quite complicated. Many countries are under quarantine and many shops are not open. This means that most Friday promotions are online only, posing a logistics challenge for many retailers who have to cope with growing online traffic and be ready to reopen in December. < / P > < p > to spread demand, many European retailers offer promotions throughout November, not just black Friday. Other retailers, including Marks & Spencer Group PLC and next PLC, will not participate in black five at all this year because they are very favorable all year round. < / P > < p > Joseph Feldman, senior managing director and assistant director of research at Telsey Advisory Group, visited best buy and Dick sporting goods stores in Westchester County, north of New York City, “quite quiet.”.

The hottest items this year are Sony Playstation 5 and Microsoft Xbox, “Feldman said. To avoid crowding, best buy chooses to release only the latest consoles online. < / P > < p > according to Baird equity research, Google searches for game products rose again this week.
