Macy's, which owns the upscale department store chain Bloomingdale's as well as its eponymous stores, had been praised broadly through the day by retail analysts for delivering on tight inventory control and compelling discounts on Black Friday.
Shares of retailers such as Macy's Inc and Wal-Mart were up on Monday following a promising start to the holiday season and ahead of what is expected to be the largest US online shopping day in history.
Adobe Insights, which measures 80 percent of digital spending from 100 major USA retailers, said a record $5.03 billion was spent online by the end of Black Friday, an increase of 17 percent from a year ago.

According to Ipsos Retail Performance, UK footfall on Black Friday was up 0.95 per cent year-on-year, with 42 per cent of retailers experiencing footfall growth. Estimates from ShopperTrak, a data analytics company that measures the number of shoppers at stores, said sales at those outlets decreased "less than 1 percent" compared to Black Friday in 2016, CNN reported. Stores offered substantial discounts, creative gimmicks and gifts to draw discount hunters out of their homes, but some shoppers said they were just scanning the merchandise, saving their cash for internet purchases. There was little evidence of the delirious shopper frenzy customary of Black Fridays from past years. Though, retail research firm ShopperTrak said store traffic fell less than 1 % on Black Friday, bucking industry foresight of a sharper decline.
