Retail Sales On Thanksgiving And Black Friday Edge Downward

December 1, 2014

(Undated)  --  Retail sales over Thanksgiving and Black Friday are down slightly compared to last year, but far more customers opted to shop on Turkey Day.  ShopperTrak estimates traffic to brick-and-mortar retailers surged 27-percent this year, while Black Friday traffic tumbled just over five and-a-half percent.  The deluge of new Thanksgiving Day shoppers wasn't quite enough to beat or match last year's 12-point-35 billion dollars in sales.  This year's sales came in at 12-point-29 billion.
