Most Black Friday Shoppers Buy for Themselves

A new retail analyst report reveals the selfish side of Black Friday shopping.

Black Friday 2015 sales will begin as early as in two weeks. A new retail study unveils that most Black Friday shoppers are hunting deals for themselves first. They switch to find deals on gifts for others on Cyber Monday.

According the a new Connexity report published by Bizreport, 52% of Black Friday shoppers look for items for themselves on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday. Come Cyber Monday, most shoppers start finding deals on gifts for their loved ones. This is kind of interesting, but also expected. Black Friday is rather early for most people to actually think about buying Christmas gifts. Black Friday is about finding deals on items to fullfill personal wishes.

A new survey of Black Friday shoppers released today shows again the that consumer electronics deals are on top of Black Friday shoppers. 43% of surveyed shoppers by said that Black Friday Electronics deals is what they look for. Apparel deals are of interest to 26% and 17% look for toy deals according to the survey of 1,140 participants.

The survey also finds that 47% would like stores to stay closed on Thanksgiving Day. 34% like that stores are open on Thanksgiving Day for Black Friday shopping, while 19% are not sure. Most consumers would like to have stores closed on Thanksgiving Day, but there are just too many that still go out and shop for big retailers like Walmart, Target, Best Buy and others to change course.

Black Friday 2015 is on November 27, but we expect the first Black Friday sales to begin on Halloween. This is already in two weeks. So far two Black Friday 2015 Ad have been released. We expect several more in the next two weeks, before the Walmart Black Friday 2015 Ad gets released around November 12.
