Moreover, BJ’s Wholesale Club has recently conducted a survey with the assistance of Wakefield research to jump into studying more about the American consumers’ buying habits during the holiday shopping season including the Black Friday 2017 sales.
According to the research study by Wakefield and BJ’s Wholesale Club, on average, about 63 percent of consumers in the United States surveyed acquire a holiday present on Black Friday sales. With almost 2 out of 3 respondents in the survey claimed that they will purchase “back-up” gifts this year’s Black Friday sales. With that being said, the 59 percent of the respondents buy a Christmas gift without a certain beneficiary in mind. And they will just buy a gift in case they need it unexpectedly.
Additionally, more about 27-percent of the people surveyed said that they had been caught “re-gifting” at least once. Nearly one in three respondents shop at more than three retail chain stores just to get their holiday season décor (Christmas decor, lights, trees, lawn decorations, ornaments, etc.) with $165 average spending on on holiday décor each year.
