Reasons for shorter holiday shopping duration in the United States 2020

The most common reason for which U.S. consumers planned to spend fewer days shopping in 2020, involved concerns about COVID-19. Just over six in ten shoppers were worried about being exposed to the coronavirus. About 40 percent of Americans felt that there were fewer items to buy this holiday season, while another third had a limited shopping budget.
