Is Black Friday in trouble? It could be!

Experts say that there are less people planning to shop on Black Friday this year because they feel that the deals are actually available year around because of online shopping.

All in all, the expectations for holiday spending are still up this year. So that is good news for retailers. Consumers are expected to spend $680 billion this holiday season, which is up from last year’s $655.8 billion. These estimates were released on Tuesday by the National Retail Federation.

Maybe this means that people won't have to leave their families on Thanksgiving to work at stores that seem to open earlier and earlier every single year.

Just in case you were wondering, there are 51 more days until Black Friday and the holiday shopping madness. Well, technically, Black Friday now begins on Thanksgiving so there are 50 days left now.
