Black Friday to Cyber Monday: the retailers’ extended Superbowl weekend and the time during which up to 40% of yearly revenue can be accrued. The importance of these four days has skyrocketed in recent years as the market has experienced a major migration to online over in-store purchases. In order to drive higher sales volume and reach new markets retailers’ focus has been forced to shift to e-commerce and mobile/app shopping experiences.

Millennials, who not surprisingly are at the forefront of this movement, will not wait and will ultimately leave retailers in the dust, leaving shopping carts full and retailers' pockets empty.
