A glance at some Black Friday stats

 In a recent study, the Retail Council of Canada asked over 2,500 Canadians from coast to coast about their shopping habits and released some interesting statistics about Black Friday shopping in their Holiday Shopping Survey 2019.

According to the results, 43% of Canadian consumers plan to shop on Black Friday vs. 34 % on Boxing Day and 32% on Cyber Monday. 

Canadians who shop on Black Friday plan to spend a greater share of their holiday budget (38%) compared with those who shop on Boxing Day (30%). 

Specifically in BC, shoppers are more likely than those in other provinces to increase their spending this year compared to what they spent in 2018.
