We are inching closer to the shopping extravaganza known as Black Friday, the day on which stores around the nation offer door-busting prices so low that otherwise-rational consumers take temporary leave of their senses, shake off their tryptophan haze and rush to the nearest mall at ungodly hours of the night. Or maybe not.

According to a PeriscopeIQ Retail Intelligence Survey of 1,000 adults, only 20 percent "definitely" plan to hit stores this Black Friday. Eighteen percent will "probably" shop, and 60 percent answered that they will either be sitting Black Friday out entirely or will try to take advantage of deals that they can find on the Internet.

As we all know, not long after Black Friday comes ... Cyber Monday.
