eBags.com off to a strong Cyber Monday start with sales up 39% YOY (year-over-year) as of 10:30am EST
Cyber Monday 2012 was an all-time company sales record day, so there is a good chance of another record today.
Wednesday–Saturday for eBags was strong as well, with sales up 26%, demonstrating that Black Friday sales growth was spread out over multiple days.
Company-wide sales were flat for Sunday, partly because of reduced promotional activity.
