Retail Franchises feel the warmth of Cyber Monday

Retail franchises such as CeX and Laura Ashley are set to see online sales soar today as Britain takes to its screens for incredible online Christmas shopping deals.

After the ugly scenes of Black Friday, that peculiar day where Britain’s middle class regress to Neanderthals in order to get their hands on a cheap TV, Cyber Monday is proving to be an altogether more civil, if a little anti-social, hit with consumers and retailers alike.

This morning, The Telegraph told the world that today is likely to see the most online transactions take place on record as spending is expected to top £500million by midnight tonight.

For internet giants such as Amazon, ebay and Argos, the day represents a huge chunk of their Christmas sales, but retail franchises too have strong online sales figures – CeX in particular has recently rejuvenated its website, providing an altogether more coordinated exchange service digitally for its customers.

As the Christmas party season gets into full swing, retail and food and beverage franchises are gearing up for what is certainly their most wonderful time of the year.
