The final numbers are in after some busy shopping days over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

According to MasterCard, online sales from Black Friday were up 10% this year. That’s a surprising jump considering how many people were only able to shop online last year as many stores were still closed or limiting capacity for in-person customers.

Now that many stores have reopened, in-store sales took a huge jump as well. MasterCard says in-store sales went up by 43%. Analysts for the company say the increase in online and in-store sales during Black Friday could indicate a big holiday spending season ahead.
