Doesn’t matter which language you use, it all means the same thing – holiday cha-ching!
Retail-Me-Not took a quick trip around the world to discover the holiday shopping habits of folks in different countries and I found the results quite fascinating. So, let’s dive into the numbers together.
40% of Americans said they were going to start shopping for December in October. But 22% of bargain hunters said they start shopping on January 1, collecting up gifts all year long in order to spread out the financial burden.
Over in Sweden and the Netherlands, almost half of those surveyed closed their eyes to early shopping, saying they plan on waiting until December to begin their hunt. If you think that’s pushing it, 18% of people in Italy said they’ll be waiting until AFTER the holidays to go shopping. That’s one way to get bargain basement prices on everything!
