More MAGAnomic Super-Winning: Saturday Sales $34.4 BILLION, Biggest Shopping Day in U.S. Retail History…

Jumping Ju-Ju Bones, Santa cancelled the recession!!

According to the latest data stats from last weekend, Saturday holiday shopping in the U.S. was more than $34.4 billion in sales.  That’s the largest single day in the history of U.S. retail sales.  Higher wages, record employment, low inflation, consumer confidence and economic security means more disposable income… boy howdy, these numbers are huge.

Keep in mind U.S. retail sales account for two-thirds of U.S. GDP growth. Wow:

(MSM-Bloomberg) Holiday shopping set records over the weekend, with Super Saturday sales reaching $34.4 billion, the biggest single day in U.S. retail history, according to Customer Growth Partners.

“Paced by the ‘Big Four’ mega-retailers — Walmart, Amazon, Costco and Target — Super Saturday was boosted by the best traffic our team has seen in years,” said Craig Johnson, president of the retail research firm.

Job growth and fatter wallets, along with stronger household finances, have put consumers in a buying mood this season, Johnson said. And more of them are shopping online. As retailers offer improved web platforms, online spending so far this season has accounted for 58% of sales growth from a year earlier, he said.

Super Saturday’s results topped Black Friday’s $31.2 billion in sales by 10%. The next biggest shopping days were Dec. 14, with $28.1 billion, and Cyber Monday, with $19.1 billion. (more)

    Yup, time to start taxing these people more. Can’t have all this going on when our government can’t even survive off a measly 1.4 trillion budget.

  2. I certainly spent my share of the $34.4 billion and I tried to keep it local. I enjoy supporting my local small businesses and I think they like it too.

      So do I. As a retired small business owner I have always tried to buy local. I am afraid online shopping will be the major player in the future though. It’s just too convenient for a lot of people. That’s the nature of capitalism….creation, and destruction. It’s why capitalist countries are the richest on earth. Something will come along in the future however to make even Amazon’s business model obsolete. I am an old coot and won’t be around to see it but it will happen barring some worldwide nuclear holocaust or lethal pandemic.

    We went to the Mall this week end. Strapped of course. We were pleasantly surprised when every clerk, checker, store employee wished us a Merry Christmas. We didn’t hear one “Happy Holidays”.
