These New Bern stores will be open offering specials

The 2022 holiday shopping season kicks into high gear on November 25th with what has become an annual late fall tradition – the frantic gift shopping known as Black Friday.

Locally, New Bern shoppers will have a wide range of Black Friday deals available both in-store and online, with most major retailers in the area slashing prices on their most popular sale items.

While inflation and lingering COVID-19 concerns are expected to keep some shoppers at home this year, 2022 is on track to be a boom year for big stores and smaller retailers alike.

According to data from Adobe Analytics, online holiday sales are expected to reach $209.7 billion from November 1st to December 31st, representing a year-on-year growth of 2.5%. During the 2021 holiday shopping season, $204.5 billion was spent online, with consumers uncertain about returning to brick-and-mortar stores due to lingering concerns about the pandemic.
