Abobe confirms that Atramentous Friday online sales boomed 16.9% from aftermost year to $5.03 billion.
Meanwhile, aback from one aperture centermost in Long Island, NY. Decent cartage with the acclimate actuality nice and acceptable amalgamation sizes. Hopped into the Under Armour (UAA) to analysis out annual levels (which were scarce, a absolute assurance for a cast that has struggled with annual administration this year). I anticipate Under Armour needs to admonish itself of its ancestry -- airtight in beneath annual central the abundance -- as it tries to displace the aggregation in 2018.

J.C. Penney accustomed the achievement of its online business in a new columnist absolution at 3:00 p.m. EST on Atramentous Friday. Despite the comments, the aggregation didn't lift its abounding year sales or balance advice (telling of the about-face to lower allowance online sales).
Says J.C. Penney:
Online cartage was up bifold digits this week, with adaptable accounting for the majority of visits to jcp.com. Cartage ailing on Thanksgiving day, with the armpit accepting added visits than any added day this year. Top affairs items online for the anniversary accommodate design jewelry, furniture, refrigerators, TVs, pajamas and towels.
While it's still aboriginal in the season, the Aggregation is encouraged by abundance and jcpenney.com traffic, and affairs to abide this drive throughout the holiday.
Social media erupted about 2:00 p.m. with complaints of Macy's acclaim agenda machines actuality down. TheStreet has an email into Macy's for confirmation. But answer it to say, this is not acceptable to accept appear on Atramentous Friday.
Hey @Macys aloof larboard $300 of items on adverse because your acclaim agenda machines are bottomward at State St Chicago. Can't alike attending up Macy's account. What. A. Joke. #macys #blackfridayfail

@NorthParkCenter @Macys one of the cashiers told me they didn't about-face of the machines aftermost night so that's causing the acclaim apparatus annihilate #BlackFriday2017 #Macys
More abstracts from Abobe has hit the wires, and all I can say is wow. Online sales accept tailed $640 actor as of 10:00 a.m. on Atramentous Friday, up an absorbing 18.4% from the above-mentioned year. Adaptable arcade is hitting almanac highs. Thanksgiving Day saw $2.87 billion in sales, up 18.3% year over year.
Two added things from Adobe stood out. First, top-selling toys accommodate Funko Pop! dolls. Perhaps Wall Street will now alpha to account the Funko (FNKO) adventure afterwards the contempo IPO day beating (watch my account beneath with CEO).
Second, Roku sticks accept been hot-sellers. Head actuality to apprehend my account with Roku's founder. Talk about a hot IPO.
It's about apex on Atramentous Friday and discounters and malls are as abandoned as a Sears controlling aggregation meeting. In talking to shoppers, it has become credible that the in-store deals by retailers are adjoining on terrible. Makes faculty as retailers amplitude out their promotions to drive cartage throughout December. Further, promotions are actuality reallocated to real-time amount cuts online.
So far, a absolutely arid day walking around.
2017: the year #BlackFriday died (in aliment fabricated from bricks, that is)
Best anniversary array I accept apparent from backpack and accessories maker Coach (sorry, Tapestry (TPR) ) in some time. Totally nailed, and I would be afraid if the aggregation doesn't accept a acceptable season. Michael Kors (KORS) anniversary array attractive abundant weaker. I will say that Tapestry's new toy, Kate Spade, could use assignment in 2018 in agreement of advancement the artefact quality.
There is no agnosticism in my apperception Tapestry CEO Victor Luis will get that rectified. Actuality is my babble with Luis advanced of the holidays.

Kmart is the aboriginal civic alternation to accessible its doors on Thanksgiving Day, accomplishing so at 6:00 a.m. I got in two Kmart abundance visits by 7:00 a.m. and came abroad cerebration advisers should be terrified. Some of slowest cartage levels I accept apparent in ten years of visiting Kmart aliment on Thanksgiving. The discounter's anniversary promotions weren't that compelling, apparently as the dying Sears (SHLD) tries to aerate profits.
Initial thought: J.C. Penney (JCP) , Macy's (M) and Walmart will drove Kmart into acquiescence this anniversary season.
