Black Friday Stats: 152 Million People Expected To Shop This WeekendNovember 25, 2011 12:48 am
We had spotted some Black Friday stats – we spotted this today:
“An estimated 152 million people are expected to shop over Black Friday weekend, up 10% from last year, according to a recent report from industry trade group the National Retail Federation.
And even that generous estimate is likely to fall short of the actual number, noted Kathy Grannis, an NRF spokeswoman. Last year, the organization estimated there would be 138 million shoppers over the long weekend, when 212 million actually showed up — a record high.”
