The interest of consumers in Black Friday has increased significantly again this year.

E-Commerce exceeds expectations

According to the calculations of the payment service provider Klarna and the platform Blackfriday.de, German online merchants recorded an increase in sales of 7% on Friday and even 13% over the entire campaign week. According to the report, millennials (25- to 40-year-olds) generated the most significant sales, contributing 52 per cent to the sales success. Generation Z (18-24) contributed 27 per cent, while older online shoppers (41-56) accounted for 18 per cent. The baby boomer group (57+) still contributed three per cent to total sales.

Stationary is disappointed

In stationary retail, on the other hand, hopes were not fulfilled. According to Handelsverband Deutschland (HDE), there was a “clear revival of business on the first Advent weekend” – among others in consumer electronics, cosmetics, food, and smartphones. However, the number of customers in the city centres is still below the pre-Corona times. The trade association expects total sales of over 120 billion euros for November and December – a minus of four per cent compared to 2021.
