Is Cyber Monday the New Black Friday?

Posted on 11-23-2022

Nov. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — More than 80 percent of consumers will shop during Cyber Week 2022 (beginning Monday, Nov 28th), according to a new online survey about holiday shopping by Drive Research. But only 32% of people said they will shop in person on Black Friday – a 9% decrease from 2021.

Survey data collected from over 1,000 consumers across the U.S. in October show that the majority of people will shop on Cyber Monday (64%) – a 42% increase from 2021. It will be the second most popular shopping day during Thanksgiving weekend, behind those shopping online for Black Friday (69%).

Online retailers like Amazon (80%), Target (51%), and Walmart (50%) can expect to see the greatest amount of sales as they are the top selected stores consumers will shop online during Cyber Week.

It’s a substantial percentage that only highlights the decline of the Black Friday “experience,” which once famously involved waking up at 3 AM and waiting in 2-hour lines for good discounts. In fact, of those Black Friday shopping in-person this year, 46% will not wait in a line that is more than 30 minutes to enter a store, and 32% are only willing to wait 30 to 60 minutes.
