Will Black Friday / Cyber Monday become the new Boxing Day?

Will Black Friday / Cyber Monday become the new Boxing Day Sale?

Black Friday – the retail sales that occur on the Friday after Thanksgiving—used to be an American tradition, until now. This year, the day of sales arrived in the UK.

Last year, so many retailers ran promotions that 72% of the UK population said they know about the Black Friday sales.
