Everyone knows that Black Friday & Cyber Monday are the two biggest shopping days of the year, and Paper Mart was no exception. Along with other retailers, Paper Mart had its biggest Cyber Monday ever!
Paper Mart’s Promotions
This year for Black Friday, Paper Mart offered 20% off select favorite products. Some of these products included premium colored tissue paper, tins, bubble mailers, etc. For Cyber Monday, Paper Mart customers received 25% off Econo & FedEx Ground Shipping on all orders. Due to the promotion’s huge popularity, Paper Mart extended this shipping promo until the end of Cyber week. Paper Mart Insiders also got early access to both sales allowing them to have more time to take advantage of these deals.
The Stats: Largest Online Sales Day in History
This year, the combined revenue growth across Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday was up 23 percent year over year. Rakuten Marketing also reported that during Thanksgiving week, mobile revenue grew by 43 percent YoY.
According to Adobe Data, on Cyber Monday, consumers spent at least $840 million through 10am Monday morning. Cyber Monday hit a new record by the end of the day as the largest online sales day in history with $6.59 billion. This is equivalent to a 16.8 percent year over year growth.
With just a few weeks left until Christmas, retail sales are expected to continue to exceed last year’s numbers. Adobe Data states, “For the rest of the season, 13 days are projected to exceed $2 billion in online sales bringing the total to 18 $2 billion days this holiday season, over double the number from last year.”
A Huge Team Effort
Returning from the Thanksgiving break, the Paper Mart team was greeted with an overwhelming amount of orders from the holiday weekend. It was a priority to get all the orders packed and shipped out asap to our customers. Our warehouse team worked round the clock to pick, pack and ship every order. Throughout Cyber Week, other departments also took shifts to help get these large amounts of orders to their final destination. We want to thank our entire team for their hard work during the busiest time of the year. We also wanted to give special thanks to all our amazing Paper Mart customers for your support. Thank you for trusting our products and service, whether it is for your own business, party or craft.
