Thanksgiving Sales Surge Online

I don't know about you but I would much rather shop for deals online than wade out into the masses for early Black Friday sales. I think Cyber Monday is going to hit record levels this year.

U.S. stores are now opening on Thanksgiving to try and boost in-store sales, while retailers have been offering online deals weeks in advance to cope with lower demand and stiff pricing competition. "We saw one of our strongest days ever online," Brian Cornell, chief executive of discount retailer Target, told reporters on Thursday evening. He added that online sales grew by double digits, without giving further details.
