Black Friday and Cyber Monday are right around the corner and people are looking forward to the hottest deals on these dates.
Shoppers in the U.S. always look forward to these events as they save a lot in buying what are in their shopping lists. Black Friday is when retail stores offer great deals and sales to shoppers.
Cyber Monday is the traditional post-Thanksgiving shopping mayhem in the U.S. It is a popular event in the market, when people avail and enjoy great online deals. Australian retailers are planning to adapt to the trend.
Australians also look forward on these events as they also enjoy great discounts while shopping online on American Web sites that also lower their shipping rates to Australia.
Cyber Monday started in 2005 after retailers noticed a spike in traffic after Black Friday sales. While Black Friday is usually the biggest day of the retail calendar in the U.S. Cyber Monday is slowly gaining popularity - last year the day generated US$1.2 billion in sales.
Australia's Own Cyber Monday
Australia will soon hold its own Cyber Monday. Click Frenzy is a joint venture of some Australian retailers to match US's Cyber Monday
Co-founder of Click Frenzy Grant Arnott said that it is important for Australian retailers to take advantage of this opportunity to participate on online sales before Christmas.
"The retail community has been supportive of the idea and they've been very keen to explore what we're doing," Garnett said.
It is speculated that Click Frenzy is trying to win back Australian consumers who go shopping online on American websites as they offer cheap shipping rates to Australia. Local shoppers take part in Cyber Monday like any other customer since transactions are online.
