JONESBORO, AR -- Americans survived “Black Friday” last week and are now experiencing “Cyber Monday”.  Monday is the first day back at work for many after the Thanksgiving Holiday and some will use part of their day to do some holiday shopping online.


Bren McConaughhay, owner of Jonesboro Flowers and Gifts says she expects her store to do very well this holiday season, and a big part of those sales will come from the internet.

“They say that from Thanksgiving through Christmas there should be over four hundred billion generated through  web sales, and flowers is in that top five for retail sales,” said McConaughhay.


The Jonesboro flowers and gifts website has been active for about three years and during that time their sales have increased.  “Especially this year they have of course we've done a lot to promote our website but definitely an increase,” said McConaughhay.


Shopping at is easy.  Shoppers can simply pick out what they want, pay for it, and the flowers or gift will be delivered that evening.


What kind of sales increase is expected this year?  “We're hoping for at least a twenty percent increase for the month of December from web sales,” said McConaughhay.”


And hopefully those sales will increase thanks to sales on "Cyber Monday".
