Local shops see big online sales Cyber Monday

Bye bye Black Friday and see you later Small Business Saturday. It was a "virtual" shopping trip on the computer Cyber Monday.

Local retailers say items are being ordered online, wrapped up, and shipped out. At Hampden Clothing, owner Stacy Smallwood says online sales are up thanks to Cyber Monday deals.

"Who wouldn't want to shop in their pajamas? We're all busy. We have long days. Everywhere from Kiawah to Isle of Palms, Charleston is a spread out city, so we make shopping easier. Website is hampdenclothing.com. Today for Cyber Monday we're offering 20% off," Smallwood said.

Smallwood estimates online sales for the shop go up at least 10% on Cyber Monday.

Online shops, like Charleston-based fringeboutique.com, rely heavily on Cyber Monday sales.

"We thought today let's do a big blow out sale for the end of the year and get more traffic to the website," co-owner Amanda Stephenson said.

On Cyber Monday everything was 40% off and shipping was free until midnight.

The online boutique says Cyber Monday has boosted online sales up to four times what they see on an average day.

"The sale started at 8 a.m. We've been promoting it. We're looking at our phones to see the orders coming through, there's been a huge amount of orders, which is great for us. We've been trying to keep up throughout the day," Stephenson said.
