Holiday Retail Roadmap

Published on28 NOV 2016

After a sluggish start to November, consumer spending picked up through the Thanksgiving and Black Friday weekend, says Matt Fassler of Goldman Sachs Research. Early numbers indicate online will remain the winning channel—growing at more than three-times the rate of core retail sales this year—with mobile phone-based shopping increasingly gaining traction.

The busiest days of the year are actually the several days before Christmas. That's where we really think the season's going to be made.
