According to the report,One of the main factors affecting Black Friday is time. In Canada, Black Friday was first promotedStarting from late October 2021. Black Friday is a day of shopping experienceHas become the past tense。 Over the years, the transaction has softened, and the Black Five itself has been extended to a somewhat unimportant few weeks, which is almost unattractive to ordinary Canadian consumers.
according toPreliminary data of early retail indicators show that as ofIn the week of November 27, 2021, Canada's total retail sales (excluding clothing and footwear) fell by 6%.

The toy industry also seems to have lost some luster: the sales volume of Black Friday fell sharply compared with 2020. This decline may be attributed to the fact that many best-selling toys are harder to find this year. As many Black Five shoppers know, finding these hot items may mean visiting different retailers multiple times or replacing them with different gifts altogether.
For clothing, footwear and beauty industries, the situation is much more encouraging. As consumers begin to slowly return to work, school, social and entertainment, they begin to return to these underperforming parts of the market. One example is the beauty industry, as ofIn the week of November 27, 2021, the sales of this industry increased by 43% compared with 2020 and 26% compared with 2019.
