US Survey Update: Consumers’ Latest Expectations for Holiday-Season Shopping (Select Findings)

What's Inside

This report provides select findings from Coresight Research’s October 13 survey of US consumers on their behaviors and expectations, with a focus on implications for retailers. This week, we focus on consumers’ expected shopping behaviors for the 2020 holiday season.

This report is available for free and can be accessed by registering for a free account. We highlight selected findings from our weekly survey across three key topics:

  1. Consumers’ expectations for holiday spending compared to last year
  2. When consumers expect to shop for the holiday 2020 season
  3. Whether respondents are currently avoiding public places, including shops

Our full report is available to premium subscribers and includes further findings:

  • The categories that US holiday shoppers expect to spend less on
  • How consumers expect to shop for the holiday 2020 season
  • A full list of the public areas or travel that consumers are avoiding
  • What activities respondents have done in the past two weeks and what they expect to do in the next two weeks
  • Whether respondents are buying more or less of any retail categories as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak and, if so, which types of products
  • Whether US shoppers are making more purchases online during the coronavirus outbreak and, if so, which categories
  • Whether respondents expect to retain behaviors from the coronavirus outbreak period over the long term—and if so, which behaviors
