RAIDMAX 10:52:00 PM
By Andrew Young – November 30, 2016
First, we like to thank all of our customers. Raidmax had a very successful 2016 Thanksgiving weekend. Our sales have topped previous years. And again, we want to thank all our customers.
After the presidential election, half of the country was not pleased with the results. People were shaken. There are reports, more like rumors, stating the Americans will be on depression because the country is divided in half, which predicted could affect the economy. Some people are scared, some are this, and some are that. They were wrong. In fact, Cyber Monday 2016 was the biggest day in the history of U.S. e-commerce.
Consumers spent $3.45 billion online on Monday, according to Adobe Digital Insights; the spending was easily passed from the initial estimates from continuing a strong Thanksgiving Black Friday weekend. Adobe has been gathering retail data from 22.6 billion visits to retail websites over the Thanksgiving holiday. On Black Friday, a new record was set with $3.34 billion spent online. The number shows, American consumers are breaking records, making history and shopping just a little bit differently than before. Perhaps in their pajamas? Now more than ever people choose to shop at home, online style.
What is Adobe Digital Insights? "Adobe Digital Insights publishes research on digital marketing and other topics of interest to senior marketing and e-commerce executives across industries.

There you have it. American’s spending power is growing year by year. And let’s hope the economy will continue to grow in this country.
