Shoppers now have access to more product choices and buying channels than ever before, and by the looks of it, we’re having a hard time saying “no”.

This infographic gives us a peek into Black Friday Shopping Trends and how it has evolved into the busiest shopping day of the year. Total Black Friday Weekend sales have more than doubled since 2005, while the online shopping fan club (that is, the people spending their hard-earned dollars over the internet) has risen to 37%.

Since it is the first day following the last major holiday before Christmas, it technically marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. In addition, many people take the day off as part of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend; this is a primary contributing factor to the rise of Black Friday shopping.

Virtually all retailers in the United States and Canada take advantage of Black Friday. Large or small, retailers offer various sales, promotional offers, and doorcrashers that aim to entice customers to enter their stores.
