  • Adrian LoweThe West AustralianCamera IconPerth fashion store Hypnotise will hold a Black Friday sale for the first time this year, say owners Kelly Kueh and Hayman Tsoi.
  • Nationally, $5.6 billion is expected to be spent between Friday and Monday, according to the National Retail Association.
  • Big retailers hit by the effects of lockdowns in the Eastern States are using the period to try to lure shoppers back to stores.
  • This means WA shoppers who have largely been able to shop without restrictions for much of the year are expected to reap the benefit.
  • Curtin University retail and consumer psychology expert Billy Sung expected higher disposable incomes — fuelled by many people being unable to travel — to lead to stronger results for retailers in WA this year.
  • National Retail Association chief executive Dominique Lamb said the $5.6b expected was an 8 per cent increase on last year.
  • Dr Sung predicted the push to encourage local shopping to counter expected logistics and supply crunches, to drive shoppers into bricks and mortar retail.
  • And though Black Saturday had its origins in e-commerce, the psychological lure of a bargain made it difficult to ignore physical stores, he said.
