Americans have returned to in-person shopping for Black Friday, with in-store traffic up 48% from last year, albeit still well below pre-pandemic levels. And now they are preparing to open their wallets for Cyber Monday, the day of maxi online discounts for which a record is expected again this year with Amazon once again queen of sales and clothing to take the lion’s share in following the reopening of the economy and the newfound desire to go out and celebrate. Despite the surge in prices, consumers are shopping at high speed worried about the possibility of finding empty shelves as the holiday season approaches. In fact, bottlenecks in production chains are not only causing prices to skyrocket but are also causing a shortage of products, forcing us to anticipate Christmas shopping especially for technological products, the most coveted by children and adults. And so – according to some estimates – Cyber Monday will be a record day for online sales in 2021: the increase is expected to be 12.4% to 12.12 billion dollars, or a volume of sales 6.2 higher than the media during the Christmas holidays.
