Big One-Day-Sales used to be limited to holidays like Columbus Day and Labor Day but online sales have helped create a whole new market. First there was Cyber Monday and now there is Green Monday.
After Walmart.com experienced their highest traffic day ever last year on the second Monday of December it is now referred to as Green Monday.
A Dec. 6 press release from Walmart reads: As you may know, the second Monday in December, also known as Green Monday, is quickly becoming another major trend in online shopping. In fact, this day last year was Walmart.com’s highest traffic day in December. And, according to comScore, the second Monday in December last year represented a 19 percent increase in online spending and was the third highest online shopping day of the season.
“We know our customers are relentlessly looking online for the best savings this holiday and our goal is to give them low prices on the gifts they want most,” said Joel Anderson, President & CEO, Walmart.com U.S. “Given this highly competitive season, we are living up to our commitment with even more big savings online before Christmas that keeps more money in their pockets this year.”
