December has arrived and, chances are, you’re already deep into holiday shopping (or about to be) for those special someones in your life.
According to Fortune.com, Christmas sales are expected to be strong this year, rising 3.6% to $655.8 billion, with online business rising as much as 10%. That’s good news for retailers of all shapes and sizes, as was the fact that more than 75% of US consumers spent the same or more on Black Friday and the following weekend this year than they did in 2015.
That said, historically, some 20% of consumers only begin their Holiday shopping in December, while many others are far from done as the last month of the year debuts.
Where do you fall on this holiday shopping timeline?
