Tapping into Black Friday Shopping Sprees


Furniturestyle reports on how consumer spending will increase this Black Friday because people want to put their dollar to the best use they can and try to get the best deal on purchases.

According to a study by the National Retail Federation, 40.0 percent of shoppers say that sales or promotions is the largest factor when determining where to shop.

That number was even higher in a study by Deloitte LLP, which found that 73 percent of consumers said they would shop at stores that had the best value and 72 percent said they would shop at stores that had the lowest — far outpacing other factors such as location, quality of merchandise or customer service.
