It's no secret that many Americans plan to designate November 23rd as their 2012 Black Friday Holiday shopping day. The day after American Thanksgiving promises to bring plenty of sales, discounts, fights and massive crowding.
According to a study conducted by CashNetUS, one out of four American citizens are worried they might not have the cash flow to purchase gifts for their family and friends this year. That's why affiliating Black Friday with Christmas gifts is a good idea; you can get more of what you want at a fraction of the price. The shopping holiday comes at an earlier time this year in hopes that more people will take advantage of all the deals.
However, with the disruption caused by Hurricane Sandy, it is predicted that with this year's 2012 Black Friday Holiday shopping, more sales will go towards home improvement and supermarkets rather than clothing and electronics.
