US Survey Update: Latest Insights into Consumers’ Holiday Shopping Plans (Select Findings)

What's Inside

This report provides select findings from Coresight Research’s November 10 survey of US consumers on their behaviors and expectations, with a focus on implications for retailers. This week, we discuss 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 2020 holiday season
  3. Whether respondents are currently buying more online than they did pre-crisis

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

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