    VIDEO2:4902:49PayPal CEO says use of 'buy now, pay later' option soared nearly 400% on Black FridayMad Money with Jim Cramer PayPal CEO Dan Schulman told CNBC's Jim Cramer on Tuesday that use of the company's buy now, pay later option surged on Black Friday. In an interview on "Mad Money," Schulman said PayPal's installment payment service is "one of the stars, actually, of the holiday season for us." "During Black Friday, our volume on buy now, pay later was up almost 400% year over year. We did some 750,000 transactions alone in one day on Black Friday," Schulman said, referring to the day after Thanksgiving that's a key part of the holiday shopping season. The activity on Black Friday continues a trend PayPal observed throughout November, which is the first time the company recorded more than $1 billion of process volume through its buy now, pay later option in a single month, Schulman said. "We did over 1 million first-time users for the first time ever in a month," he added, putting its overall usage "well over 10 million consumers."...
    A BLACK Friday thief has been mocked online for looking shocked in her police mugshot after being arrested for a shoplifting spree.

Smith, who said she lived on a caravan site in Hull, East Yorks., pleaded guilty to theft. But despite being caged before she still looked shocked on her bizarre mugshot, prompting online wags to mock her. Vicki Louise asked: "Why does she look so shocked?" Joseph Kennedy-Pinnock said: "Looks like she still caught by surprise." One wag quipped: "Not sure why she looks so surprised. She'd just come out of prison." Martin Butterworth, prosecuting, said she had only been released from jail a couple of weeks ago for breaching a court order imposed...
    The FBI conducted 187,585 National Instant Criminal Background System (NICS) checks on gun sales and transfers on Black Friday 2021 alone. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) reports the Black Friday 2021 NICS checks surpassed those of 2020, which came in at 186,645. Moreover, NSSF noted that the FBI performed a total of 687,788 NICS checks during the entire week, including those on Black Friday. NSSF president Joe Bartozzi commented on the tremendous number of background checks conducted last week: This figure of over 687,000 background checks is truly remarkable. This year has already been shaping up to be the second strongest year for firearm sales on record, second only to 2020’s record-breaking number of 21 million background checks for a firearm sale. We anticipate, based on annual data, that firearm sales will rise during the final month of the year coinciding with hunting seasons and holiday sales. This figure, though, underscores the appetite for lawful firearm ownership in America and the resilience of the firearm and ammunition industry to meet that demand. Background checks have been relatively high during 2021, with the...

    Groups of looters hit two Best Buy stores in Minnesota’s Twin Cities just after 8:00 p.m. on Black Friday, according to reports. One of the looting frenzies occurred at the Burnsville Best Buy, where 20-30 suspects rushed the store in a flash mob-style robbery, KSTP reported. Burnsville Police Capt. Don Stenger said that no weapons were used in the Burnsville shoplifting incident, according to the Star Tribune. “We don’t know exactly what was taken or the dollar value,” Stenger added. The second looting incident took place at the Maplewood Best Buy, where police say a group of ten to twelve looters, comprised of adults and juveniles, stole “high value items,” according to KSTP. Police were told that the suspects walked into the store at the same time and worked in tandem to steal hoverboards, televisions, and tablets, among other items, the Star Tribune reports. No one was injured in either incident and as of Saturday, no suspects were arrested. Police are investigating if the incidents are related, CBS Minnesota reported. Best Buy released the following statement via a spokesperson regarding the...
    Several localities across the United States have reported smash-and-grab robberies on Black Friday, contributing to a larger reported number of similar crimes in recent days. In California, the cities of Lakewood, Los Angeles and Monterey all experienced smash-and-grab robberies on the busy post-Thanksgiving shopping day.  The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reported that on Friday evening eight people entered a Home Depot in Lakewood, which is a part of Los Angeles County, and went directly to the tool aisle. Officials said that roughly $400 worth of sledgehammers, hammers and crowbars were immediately taken from the store. The department noted that the robbers may have gotten inside of a damaged, red Mercedes Benz upon taking off. According to the Los Angeles Times, the Los Angeles Police Department also reported a string of robberies in the city Friday evening. Several of those crimes involved physical altercations with staff: At one store a worker was reportedly sprayed with a chemical agent, while at another multiple employees were said to have been pushed to the ground as the robbers fled. Meanwhile, in Monterey, $30,000 worth of sunglasses were taken by...
    Retailers are on track to hit record sales this holiday season despite bargain hunters not finding the usual amount of Black Friday deals because of inflation and supply chain issues. Shoppers spent slightly less online during Black Friday this year, with many venturing back to physical stores despite coronavirus fears, tight supplies and retailers' efforts to encourage earlier holiday purchases.   For November and December, online sales are estimated to hit a record $207 billion, up 10 percent from last year, according to Adobe Digital Economy Index.  Meanwhile, the National Retail Federation has forecast combined brick-and-mortar, and online holiday sales to reach between $843.4 billion and $859 billion, an 8.5 percent to 10.5 percent spike from last year. 'Even though the holiday season should be okay from a sales standpoint - because retailers are discounting less - the margins won't necessarily be higher because of inflation,' said Forrester Research analyst Sucharita Kodali.   People shop at Macy's Herald Square store during Black Friday in New York. Shoppers spent slightly less online during Black Friday this year, with many venturing back to physical...
    Officials are investigating a robbery incident inside the Home Depot store in Los Angeles County, Fox 11 reported on Friday. “The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department responded to reports of a grand theft auto at the Home Depot in the 5000 block of Hardwick Street in Lakewood,” the outlet said. Officials were told eight individuals who were between ages 15 and 20 grabbed hammers, crowbars, and additional tools from the store. LASD was also informed the group took off in getaway cars parked outside. One employee said workers tried to stop them. “We closed the front entrance and they put their sledgehammers up, like whoever got in the way, they were going to hurt them. And then, they actually threatened a customer, but he got away. And then, they just ran out, and the cops got here shortly,” he explained: According to deputies, the entire hammer section was cleaned out by the suspects. The incident is currently under investigation, the Fox 11 article said. Meanwhile, on Saturday, a citywide tactical alert has since been lifted in the majority of...
    A group of between 20 to 30 people robbed a Best Buy Burnsville, Minn., on Black Friday, stealing an unknown amount of merchandise. CBS 4, a local CBS affiliate reported that the group overtook the Best Buy around 8 p.m., according to law enforcement, stealing electronics and other store merchandise. The suspects fled before police arrived. Police said no one was injured during the robbery and no weapons were found at the scene. Also on Friday, police said a smaller mob broke into another Best Buy in a mall nearby Burnsville.  The Hill has reached out to the Burnsville Police Department for more information.  The crime follows a recent trend of "smash-and-grab" style burglaries across the country. Organized groups arrive at stores, break in and steal merchandise before fleeing in getaway cars. An Apple store and a Nordstrom were robbed on Wednesday in California. The robbers stole about eight expensive purses at the clothing retail store and the Apple store suffered about $20,000 in product losses.  The Best Buy groups ransacked the store while it was still open, unlike many instances of smash-and-grab robberies...

    Roaming packs of thieves ransacked another luxury retailer in Los Angeles on Black Friday before descending on Home Depot despite California Gov. Gavin Newsom's vow to crack down on the string of organized 'smash and grabs' plaguing the state.  The Bottega Veneta store in LA's trendy Beverly Grove shopping district saw a large group enter the store at 5:21 p.m. and snatch pricey merchandise before one robber pepper-sprayed someone in the face, the LA Police Department reported.  At the Home Deport, in Lakewood, eight people made their way into the home improvement chain at 7:55 p.m. and stole sledgehammers, wrenches and hammers, threatened customers and then fled in 10 getaway cars.  The Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department told CBS that the Home Deport robbery was especially worrying because the tools stolen could likely be used to rob more stores in the area.  Sheriff's deputies added that an entire section of sledge hammers was cleared out at the Home Depot, hammers similar to those that gangs of thieves have used to smash glass displays to nab jewelery and other high-end products,...
    Climate crazies Extinction Rebellion blockaded a number of Amazon warehouses in the UK on Black Friday, the company’s busiest day of the year. Thirteen Amazon warehouses in the UK were targetted by Extinction Rebellion, in an attempt to disrupt the retail giant’s busiest day of the year and protest against the supposedly environmentally damaging practices of Amazon. The group began its blockade of Amazon’s largest warehouse in the UK in Dunfermline, Scotland, at 4 am on Friday, according to a report from The Telegraph. Protesters prevented lorries from leaving the site, as well as some from entering through the use of placards, and by using so-called “lock-ons” — devices that are designed to prevent protesters from being removed. Extinction Rebellion claimed that every Amazon distribution centre in the UK would be targeted by the organisation, with similar protests also occurring in the US, Germany, and the Netherlands. Over 31 XR activists were arrested at Amazon warehouses across the country on Black Friday, the BBC reported. A spokeswoman for the far-left climate alarmist group at the Dunfermline blockade stated that they were...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Spring Garden Community pantry spent this Black Friday collecting winter gear for folks in need. They teamed up with six Philly Community Fridge groups from around the city to organize Friday’s drive at 9th and Market Streets. Organizers collected five large bins of winter weather essentials. And because it was so cold, they gave away some of those items on the spot to people who needed them. The rest will be distributed next month.
    BURNSVILLE, Minn. (WCCO) — Authorities in the Twin Cities say a group of up to 30 people robbed a Best Buy store in the south metro on Black Friday. The Burnsville Police Department says that the group entered the Best Buy location near Burnsville Center shortly after 8 p.m., stole electronics and fled before police arrived. No one in the group displayed a weapon and no injuries were reported. So far, no arrests have been made, and it’s unclear how much merchandise was stolen from the store. Maplewood police say that six people robbed a different Best Buy near Maplewood Mall. The people then fled in several vehicles. While the robbery is under investigation, it resembles other “mass robberies” seen across the country. In such cases, several robbers swarm a store, ransack the shelves and run away, sometimes assaulting shoppers and store employees in the process.   More On WCCO.com: Historic Wabasha Street Caves In St. Paul Begins New Chapter ‘That’s A Unicorn’: Plymouth Man Lands Record Muskie On Lake Mille Lacs 9 Hurt After Car Slams Into...
    Officials in California sent word earlier this week that they planned to crack down on "smash and grab" robberies and flash-mob-style looting after numerous recent incidents up and down the state. But apparently not everybody got the message. At least two such incidents occurred in Los Angeles County on Black Friday, according to reports. In Lakewood, a group of suspects ages 15 to 20 stormed a Home Depot store around 8:30 p.m. and grabbed tools such as crowbars, mallets and sledgehammers before getting away in vehicles that were waiting outside, FOX 11 of Los Angeles reported. One entire section of hammers was completely cleared out, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies told the station. As many as 10 vehicles pulled up outside the store and the thieves donned ski masks before launching their spree, KCBS-TV of Los Angeles reported. RAMPANT SMASH-AND-GRAB THEFT PART OF FAILURE TO PROSECUTE CRIMINALS, TOLERATED BY OFFICIALS, EXPERTS SAY The theft prompted fears that the stolen tools would be used to commit more robberies at other stores in the area, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told...
    Los Angeles police late Friday were on citywide tactical alert after a wave of smash-and-grab “flash mob” robberies at high-end stores. And in Lakewood, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department detectives were investigating a possible smash-and-grab robbery at a Home Depot after people stormed into the store Friday night and fled with sledgehammers and bolt cutters, according to authorities and a store employee. Friday’s tactical alert follows a series of incidents in which groups have swooped in on stores across Los Angeles — including a Nordstrom at the Grove shopping center and several stores at the Beverly Center in the Beverly Grove neighborhood — and have fled with thousands of dollars in merchandise. Three people have been arrested in connection with the incident at Nordstrom on Tuesday, where as many as 20 people stole $5,000 worth of merchandise after smashing a display window, police said. In Canoga Park, several people entered a Nordstrom store Wednesday night at the Westfield Topanga & the Village shopping center, where they attacked a security guard with bear spray and took off with merchandise. At...
    (CBS4) — This year, according to the National Retail Federation, retailers are making a big comeback — and setting records — thanks to consumer spending habits. And it may come as a shock, but experts say e-commerce is only a small part of it. (credit: CBS) “We love stores, and the thing is as soon as the stores opened back up, we went back to them again brick and mortar sales are up 64% this year from last year, which is really good news. These are people physically going to the stores to take immediate possession of the goods,” said Darrin Duber-Smith, Senior Lecturer with Metropolitan State University. Duber-Smith says online spending is only about 15-20% of sales this year — pandemic closures and lockdowns last year likely driving more people to shop in person. “We’re primates, we have all five of our senses and so the internet is only engaging a couple of senses,” he said. With stay-at-home orders at the beginning of the pandemic, it also meant Americans weren’t spending money on top of receiving federal financial assistance....
    Three people, including a 10-year-old boy, were shot and three others sustained injuries Friday as a result of a shooting at a shopping mall in Durham, North Carolina.

    POLICE have responded to reports of a shooting at Southpoint Mall. Law enforcement officers were called to the Streets at the mall following the reports. 1A shooting has been reported at the mallCredit: Google Maps Shoppers rushed to malls across the country today as Black Friday sales commenced. Malls and stores report decent-sized crowds, if not the floods of people that used to fight over the latest toys and electronics — online shopping is much too common for that now, and discounts are both more subdued and spread out over the weeks leading up to Christmas, on both websites and in stores. But out-of-stock items due to supply crunches, higher prices for gas and food, and labor shortages that make it more difficult to respond to customers are also causing frustrations for shoppers.

    If Amazon packages arrive slowly this week, it may be due to one of several protests against the company on Black Friday. Amazon is coming under immense pressure from climate activists and union employees on one of the busiest days of the year. The effort is being advanced by Make Amazon Pay , a coalition of 70 organizations pushing for the Big Tech company to improve working conditions and wages, for which Amazon has been regularly criticized. "The coalition demands Amazon pays its workers fairly and respects their right to join unions, pays its fair share of taxes, and commits to real environmental sustainability," the Make Amazon Pay coalition said in a statement.

    Toys are seen at a Target store on October 25, 2021 in Houston, Texas.Brandon Bell | Getty Images Despite high sales expectations for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, just over half of American consumers don't plan to shop on some of the biggest days for deals during the holiday season. Fifty-two percent of Americans said they won't go shopping on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, or Cyber Monday, while 59% said they are not excited to go shopping on any of the three days, according to a CNBC/Momentive Small Business Survey for Small Business Saturday. The survey was conductive by Momentive from Nov. 10 to Nov. 12 and included 2,744 respondents. An estimated 158.3 million people will shop from Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday this year, an increase of 2 million people compared to 2020, according to the National Retail Federation. However, that would be down 4.2% compared to the number of people that shopped over that period in 2019. Amid a holiday shopping season noticeably different than previous years impacted by pandemic trends and new habits like curbside pickup,...

The answer to both questions is yes. Mail Will Be Delivered Today Mail is still going to be delivered today and the post offices are going to be open for their regular hours.

    Climate activists are blockading Amazon warehouses across the U.K. on Friday in an attempt to pressure the ecommerce giant on one of its busiest days of the year to improve working conditions and end business practices that hurt the environment. Members of Extinction Rebellion targeted 13 Amazon fulfilment centers in the United Kingdom with the aim of disrupting 50% of the company’s deliveries on Black Friday, which marks the unofficial start to the holiday shopping season. Activists blocked the entrance to Amazon’s warehouse in Tilbury, just east of London, with an effigy of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos sitting on top of a rocket. At Amazon’s distribution center in Dunfermline, Scotland, about 20 Extinction Rebellion members strung banners across the entrance road that said “Make Amazon Pay” and locked themselves together, stopping trucks from entering and some from leaving. The group is demanding Amazon provide better working conditions, clear environmental commitments, and for the company to pay its fair share of tax. “The action is intended to draw attention to Amazon’s exploitative and environmentally destructive business practices,...

    (CNN)I delight in finding the perfect gift for a loved one and experience joy in thoughtful personal purchases. But I bristle against spending for the sake of spending, especially for manufactured "holidays" like Black Friday.Decisions about dollars are complicated. "The consumer dilemma is the idea that the planet clearly needs us to reduce our consumption, but our economy needs us to consume more and more every year," said James MacKinnon, author of "The Day the World Stops Shopping: How Ending Consumerism Saves the Environment and Ourselves."Holidays are most exhausting for moms. Heres how to address thatThe pandemic revealed how vulnerable our economic system is to any kind of disturbance in people's appetite to shop, MacKinnon noted. "We have created a system that is dependent on us acting as consumers. It's almost as though it limits our freedoms to choose how we want to live and determines what our social role will be." There may be financial circumstances that drive a person's need to make purchases on big sale days, but if you experience the financial freedom that allows you to...

    Target is a Black Friday hot spot for holiday shoppers but a change in their recent plans has some customers asking questions about their hours.  When it comes to holiday shopping, Target is one of the biggest destinations for customers, especially when it comes to Black Friday. And while some people have elected to take their holiday rush online, some still prefer to go to the store and get things done. With that said, recent years prior to 2020 had seen many stores open on Thanksgiving Day and allow mad dashes to the hot items on the holiday. That, however, is now a thing of the past, at least for this store. Prior to the holiday, Target announced that they would be closed on Thanksgiving Day in 2021 and every year moving forward. That’s absolutely huge news but it could also affect the plans of any Black Friday shoppers. Specifically, it begs the question of when the store opens on the day after Thanksgiving.Target Black Friday hours: When does Target open?For the most part, Target will open a 7 a.m....
