Factoid of the Day Friday, October 17, 2014
The National Retail Federation’s Holiday Consumer Spending Survey found that the average shopper will do 44.4% of their holiday shopping online, the highest percentage in the 13-year history of the survey, according to its own release. Shoppers are planning to spend an average of $804.42 this holiday season, up 4.8% from the $767.27 spent a year ago. Forty percent of those polled plan to begin their holiday shopping before Halloween. The average shopper will be stressing such factors as discounts, quality/selection of merchandise, shipping promotions and easy-to-use mobile websites when choosing where to shop. For the eighth year in a row, gift cards are expected to be the most requested gift item.
