The Ten Best Days to Shop this Holiday Season

Sean Gallup/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- If you want to avoid the rush and all the crowds that come with holiday shopping, ShopperTrak, a firm that analyzes foot traffic, has released a list of the “ten lightest shopping days.”

The best days to shop are Monday through Thursday following Thanksgiving weekend, with Tuesday, Nov. 27, earning the honor of the lightest shopping day.

Here are the ten lightest shopping days, ranked from least to most retail foot traffic:

1. Nov. 27 -  Tuesday
2. Nov. 26 -  Monday
3. Nov. 28 - Wednesday
4. Dec. 4 - Tuesday
5. Nov. 29 - Thursday
6. Dec. 3 - Monday
7. Dec. 5 - Wednesday
8. Dec. 6 - Thursday
9. Dec. 10 -  Monday
10. Dec. 11 -  Tuesday

“Black Friday is not for the faint of heart," says Bill Martin, the founder of ShopperTrak. "Shoppers must brave the crowds to take advantage of good deals.  If they can venture back out after just a few days, however, they’ll have the full attention of store employees and plenty of remaining discounts.”
