As we begin to wind down the fall season, we get to embark on some beloved American traditions including Thanksgiving feasts, and the holiday shopping season. Following the twenty-four-hour cycle of exuberant shoppers hitting department stores around the country for Black Friday, a larger wave of savings and sales will descend upon all of us with decent Wi-Fi connections.
Be sure to book a stay with The St. Gregory Hotel this Cyber Monday, and come out to DC for some fun this holiday season.
What is Cyber Monday Monday?
Cyber Monday is a digital follow up to the holiday shopping tradition of Black Friday. Back in 2005, a team of creatives spearheaded by Ellen Davis and Scott Silverman created Cyber Monday for the National Retail Federation and a special event on Shop.org. Since its inception, the shopping holiday has exploded around the world inspiring annual sales events for most online retailers.
