Black Friday sales drop over last year to $12.1 billion

Sales from Black Friday were down a bit this year as retailers didn't move as much merchandise for the sales that stretched from Thanksgiving through the following day.

CNBC reported the sales fell to $12.1 billion, which included about $2 billion on Thanksgiving and $10 billion on Friday. That info came from a report from ShopperTrak, which also indicated brick-and-mortar stores saw their sales rise for the two days.

The report found that while retailers count on the day after Thanksgiving to spur sales, many had released info on prices right after Halloween and reaped more sales over an extended period of time.
