New analyst report sees steep decline in foot traffic for electronics stores this Holiday season.
According to our Black Friday Countdown site there are only 66 days left until Black Friday 2012, November 23. Over the last years, Black Friday sales have more and more become an online phenomenon. To score Black Friday deals online is just much more comfortable than to go out during the middle of the night to fight for a $199 50-inch HDTV at Walmart. A new forecast from Shopertrak confirms this trend and sees an acceleration.
ShopperTrak expects foot traffic to drop steeply by 8% in the electronics and appliance sector. Sales will though increase slightly, by 1.5% over last year. 8 percent less consumers will go and by their holiday electronics in stores. The online electronics business is still though growing. Online Black Friday shopping is where the future is.
As last year we expect the Black Friday 2012 sales season start early November.
The first Black Friday Ads are expected to be published by Mid-October. Last year the Black Friday Harbor Freight Ad got published on October 11 as first Black Friday Ad.
