ST. LOUIS – Today is Cyber Monday and Amazon and others are expecting a big online shopping day, but don’t forget local shops.
Emarketer.com predicts today will be the most significant online spending day in U.S. history.
They predict sales of $12.89 billion dollars. That’s an increase of 38 percent from last year.
Black Friday shoppers in the U.S. spent a record $9 billion dollars which is 20 percent more than on Black Friday last year.
Due to the pandemic, it’s especially important to support local businesses this year and the #314together campaign is helping shoppers do that.
They’ve teamed up with over 150 local businesses to offer a shopping discount card. It’s just $30 and all the proceeds will go to support Operation Food Search. It will also enter you into several cash giveaways leading up to the holidays.
You can purchase a discount card at thenewnormalstl.com.
