Color me not surprised, again. Retailers need to drop the pretense that Black Friday and Cyber Monday even exist. They killed both days when they instituted early sales at Black Friday pricing. Special days are meaningless when the sales now cover a period of some six to seven weeks.
Their extending it this year made sense because of worries about logistics and delivery slowdowns. If they went back to the best deals being available those two days, plus some slightly-less-awesome deals in the days leading up to Black Friday and over the weekend, then it'd be special again. Next year we'll hopefully not have all the logistics issues that we do now.

I'm about 99% certain they won't do that.

I think we can sum things up thusly: Retailers killed their golden goose that was Black Friday & Cyber Monday. Expect them to start whining about it, blaming everyone but themselves.

Nah, that'll be Cyber Monday sales. Black Friday will start September 1st.

And Amazon Prime "Day" will be all of July.

Could be, but they said online sales were pretty high.

Some people like shopping in B&M stores. After my dad died I would take my mom pretty much anywhere she needed to go because she didn’t drive and she lived in a rural area where cabs were not an option. Whenever I took her to shop, she would happily go up and down every aisle, pick up and examine almost every item whether she wanted to buy it or not, and pretty much annoy me to death! I’m a get in, find item, get out quick shopper. But for mom it was a great adventure, and I understood that so I tried my best to never show my annoyance and lack of patience at being stuck in a store with her for hours. But a lot of people are more like I am in that they prefer to shop online and have stuff delivered. Even before the pandemic B&M stores were suffering. A lot of old chains like Sears have disappeared. A lot of people today just don’t have the time nor desire to go shopping at a B&M store.
This is me! I despise shopping and have for years. All my shopping is done online, it's quick, easy and I don't have to deal with people! The great thing about shopping online is you can do it when you want. If you come across a Christmas present in July, you can buy it in July, you don't have to wait for BF. So while fewer people may have shopped on BF, they might find that purchases are up for the year.

I can understand why B&M stores didn't go crazy with setting up for BF, they had no idea how many people may show up or more importantly NOT show up especially with this never ending pandemic still going on.

Even if I was a big B&M shopper, you couldn't pay me to go into any stores for hours on end right now!!!

I have been in the jewelry business for over forty years now. I do not enjoy the Christmas Season. Christmas for me is very long hours working to get out the custom jobs for my customers. I do enjoy seeing the faces of my customers when they see the finished product for the first time, but the season itself has no joy for me. When my son was young, I would get up early and watch him open his gifts and then sleep most of the day. When he left home, I could just sleep. Now that we have grandchildren, I am back to getting up early again.
