The holiday report analyzes shoppers’ cadence across product categories and compares trends from the previous year. Some key highlights from the 2017 report include:
- The average customer is expected to spend 21% more than last year
- 85% of customers are unlikely to shop after Christmas
- Gen X will spend 47% more than last year compared to other demographic groups
- E-commerce continues to edge out brick-and-mortar stores and is increasingly becoming the first choice for shoppers in various product categories, especially consumer electronics
- While shoppers browse at physical stores, they immediately check online sites for a wider assortment. "Endless aisles", where customers can view products online that are not available in stores, can be an effective solution
The report also tracks the impact of digital retail on the extended ecosystem and provides themes for retailers to enhance the in-store shopper experience.
