Description: There were still lineups of course. And many retailers were offering deals. But Black Friday this year seemed to have less retail store traffic in the US than in some prior years. Of course, now with some retailers opening on Thanksgiving Thursday, some consumers may have already made their purchases.  And online purchases were up roughly 15% over the prior year.

Discussion Points:

1) Why do you think Black Friday lineups may have decreased in the US this year?

2) Have you ever crossed the border to participate in so-called Black Friday? What was your experience like?

3) What do you think the increase in online sales this year says about the future of eCommerce?
