Year-End Shopping Habits
“As expected, holiday shopping will continue into the new year. The survey found that sixty-five percent of holiday shoppers plan to shop during the week immediately following Christmas. The top reasons consumers plan to shop during this time are to take advantage of deals and promotions (42 percent) and to use gift cards (24 percent).”
