Each year, the day after Thanksgiving which is the last Thursday in November is the record day for sales in the US. I was browsing the Internet and a news caught my eyes. It was about the amount of sales on Friday, Nov. 23, 2007. This after Thanksgiving sale day is called the "Black Friday". I want to share this news with my readers. It follows:
According to ShopperTrak RCT Corp., which tracks sales at more than 50,000 retail outlets, total sales rose 8.3 percent to about $10.3 billion on Friday, the day after , compared with $9.5 billion on the same day a year ago. ShopperTrak had expected an increase of no more than 4 percent to 5 percent.
