Just like *that* 2021 is nearly over. With one of the craziest years in our lifetime coming to a close, the prospect of a holiday with family and friends is truly something to anticipate! Consumer spending has surged since the pandemic began to recede, and experts predict a record-breaking holiday shopping season. In fact, consumer holiday spending is expected to exceed last year’s total by 8-10%, averaging nearly $1,000 per person.
A strong economic rebound, coupled with ongoing supply chain issues that plague many large retailers, provides a great incentive to consider shopping locally for everyone on your list this holiday season.
