Smartphones sales break all record on Black Friday: Adobe

Retailers declare victory on Black Friday, though crowds were modest

And apparently those looking for online doorbusters started their shopping spree on Thanksgiving evening. Digital sales reached a record $5.03 billion, among the top sellers were Roku and the Nintendo Switch.

Thanksgiving Day 2017 also reportedly featured the biggest discounts on apparel, computers, and sporting goods, and many retailers are expected to have sold out of product categories like appliances, tablets, and televisions, even before Black Friday arrived.

Shares of retailers such as Macy's Inc and Wal-Mart were up on Monday following a promising start to the holiday season and ahead of what is expected to be the largest USA online shopping day in history. Amazon did not provide sales figures for Black Friday. Some $640 million was spent as of 10 a.m. Friday - that's an 18.4 percent increase from past year, according to Adobe Analytics.

According to Ipsos Retail Performance, UK footfall on Black Friday was up 0.95 per cent year-on-year, with 42 per cent of retailers experiencing footfall growth.

ShopperTrak senior executive Brian Field released a statement on the debate over the decline in in-store retail shopping. Earlier on Friday, Macy's CEO Jeff Gennette told The Associated Press said he was pleased with the kickoff to the season. Big-box retailers Wal-Mart and Target's shares increased by less than 1 percent.

Adobe Analytics said Cyber Monday is expected to drive $6.6 billion in internet sales, which would make it the largest USA online shopping day in history.

In the meantime, there's plenty of busy holiday shopping days to come.
