Retailers try to turn 'Cyber Monday' into 'Cyber Weekend'

November 19, 2012 02:29 PM ET

So could an early weekend start to Cyber Monday save companies from dealing with so many workers shopping on the job? Probably not, according to Olds.

"Even though Cyber Monday is probably going to eventually turn into Cyber Friday Afternoon, people will still do quite a bit of their holiday shopping from work on Monday," he added. "They'll compare notes with their co-workers and friends, then attempt to snag some deals on Monday. Plus, retailers who are disappointed with their Cyber Weekend take will probably get even a bit more aggressive on Monday."
