Session Information

Session 1 | The forces working for and against a post-inflation, post-pandemic holiday

During the height of the pandemic in 2020, people stuck at home spent mostly on goods; the 2021 holiday season helped launch a year of splurging, and in 2022, despite inflation, holiday shoppers were by and large still in the mood to spend. But, even with consumer sentiment up and inflation down, there are challenges that could pose a risk to holiday sales this year. 

Join Retail Dive  and our industry expert for a deep dive into consumer sentiment, shopping trends and their take on the holiday outlook.
