Planning your Thanksgiving: When’s the best time to fly?
With Thanksgiving fast approaching, many of us suddenly realize we either didn’t plan ahead or have no choice but to travel along with the masses to see our friends and family.
In 2022, a record 196.7 million Americans shopped in stores and online during the five-day holiday shopping period from Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday, according to the annual survey released by the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights & Analytics.
“The Thanksgiving holiday shopping weekend is a tradition treasured by many American families,” said NRF President Matthew Shay.
Black Friday continues to reign as the most favored day for in-store shopping. Last year, roughly 72.9 million consumers shopped in-person, up from 66.5 million in 2021.
“As inflationary pressures persist, consumers have responded by stretching their dollars in any way possible,” Shay said. “Retailers have responded accordingly, offering shoppers a season of buying convenience, matching sales and promotions across online and in-store channels to accommodate their customers at each interaction.”
