Everyone’s shouting about Black Friday, but really, when is it?

Not long ago, shoppers could simply pencil in one Friday a year and get all their Christmas shopping done online in one swoop, but those ever-creative retailers with their Bricks, Clicks and Omni/Multi-channel have gone and spoilt it.

Black Friday it seems, has suddenly turned into Black November. Morphing almost overnight into its very own shopping season, retailers today have even more complex plans and information to communicate to stores and require agile tools to execute in-store.

The retail high street is a battleground during Black Friday season – the ‘Golden Quarter’. The ‘Make or Break’ period where retailers budgets are hit or missed. Being able to react to both high-streets competitors, and those who only operate online is imperative should the battle for the purse be won. Thankfully, RMS has all the tools you require to make Black Fridays, Cyber Mondays, or Whatever Weekday a complete trading success.
