Download: Consumers Not Done Holiday Shopping
Who’s finished with their holiday shopping?
The NPD Group Holiday Shop-O-Meter found found consumers have finished 44 percent of their holiday shopping.
While the last minute purchases may mean added stress for procrastinators, they may also amount to some deals.
NPD, which tracks and analyzes businesses, said that’s because retailers will want to clear out their inventory before Christmas.
If they sell it after, they may have to mark it even lower, cutting into their profit.
