Shoppers Staying Home for Online Deals?
ComScore said today that online spending jumped to $677 million last weekend, almost twice the amount spent last year on the weekend before Christmas.
That's especially interesting considering that a report released by America's Research Group and UBS showed that just 38.7 percent of Americans actually went out shopping in the final week, down from 41.6 percent last year. That's the lowest turnout in at least six years.
So, what's going on here? Are you finding better deals online? Or do you think the malls will be too crowded with bargain hunters? Tell us in the comments section.
