Retail sales

Black Friday traditionally has been one of the busiest shopping days of the year, but the way retailers view it has been changing.

That’s according to Ted Potrikus, he is the President and CEO of the New York State Retail Council, and he said that while stores will certainly be busy on Friday, the concentration of shoppers is more spread out throughout the holiday season, partly due to online sales but also because of the staggered hours at the regular brick and mortar stores.
