Are you ready for Cyber Monday shopping?
During the 2005 holiday season the term "Cyber Monday" emerged onto the retail scene. The term was used specifically within the e-commerce community. The "Cyber Monday" term was first coined based on research showing that 77% of online retailers reported a significant increase in sales on the Monday after Thanksgiving in 2004.
Since then the term has gone mainstream and now appears in fashion sources such as Apparel Search and general news venues such as local newspapers and news channels.
According to Wikipedia, Cyber Monday is the Monday immediately following, Black Friday. It marks the ceremonial kick-off of the holiday online shopping season, which falls between Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is important to note that Black Friday is associated with traditional brick-and-mortar stores, but "Cyber Monday" symbolizes a busy day for online retailers. The premise was that consumers would return to their offices after the Black Friday weekend, making purchases online that they were not able to make in stores.
