Black Friday is here...

Today is the big day. Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year is here and retailers and shoppers are both wary. Retailers are hoping that consumers will open their wallets and consumers are keen to see special deals that will entice them to spend more. If consumers are happy with what they find in the stores on Black Friday, they are likely to come back and shop more for Christmas in the coming weeks as well. It is the day that decides the fortunes of most retailers, and thus it was named Black Friday, for it was the day that numbers went into the black for them. I'm waiting to see the numbers for the day and compare them to last years figures.
