People Bought A Lot Of *Stuff* Over Thanksgiving Weekend
Apparently, a lot of people did some shopping over the Thanksgiving weekend. (Including one of our co-workers who has had numerous packages delivered to the office this week.)
According to numbers released by the National Retail Federation, more than 165 million Americans shopped either in stores or online from Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday. They also say that shoppers spent a little less this year during that specific time frame compared to last year. This year, the average shopper spent $313.29 on gifts and other holiday items over the five-day period. Last year, the average amount spent on shopping was $335.47.
And what demographic spent the most money over Thanksgiving weekend? Well, according to the NRF, that would be the 'older millennials' and Gen Xers (people who fall between the ages of 35-44 years old) who reportedly spent $413.05.
