One of the busiest and liveliest days in the American Calendar includes holiday shopping. This is the time wherein people buy presents for themselves as well as their loved ones. This is also the time for retail stores and big department stores to vacant their inventory and make additional profit before the year ends.
There are two great shopping events that happen annually during the month of October - more specifically after Thanksgiving. First is Black Friday and the second one is what we call Cyber Monday. You could be more familiar with the former since there are several advertisements going around it even at print ads and television. And even online if you will. But for those individuals who are not visiting their desktop or laptop PC that often, still they can participate in the said event. Just look at the long lines at your nearest Best Buy, Target, Walmart or Kohl's stores!
Now, Cyber Monday can be a little bit tricky especially for people who are not that tech savvy. It is good to note, however, that this shopping event is not only exclusive for those computer geeks who spend their whole day in the computer. An average Joe or Jane can join and get massive online discounts during this day. Like I've said, this shopping spree happens online. The thing is, there are stores who may not be able to "clean up" their inventory - meaning low in sales volume.
And thus, to compensate for that "loss", they can advertise /post their items online and hope that some visitors would take notice of the items and buy them! Another profit coming to the shop owner's wallet. Kaching! Don't you love that sound.
