The holidays are a time of necessary shopping, and retail outlets do their best to outshine the competition. While Black Friday has traditionally been the biggest shopping day of the year complete with lines wrapping around the store, Cyber Monday is now making a strong impression on sale-savvy shoppers.
Beginning on the first Monday after Thanksgiving, Cyber Monday allows shoppers to search for deals without the hassles of waking up early and entering a packed store.
