Canadians Will Holiday Shop Last Minute

Canadians plan to do their holiday shopping in-store and well into December, says the ‘2021 Holiday Shopping Report’ from Accenture. Furthermore, 57 per cent plan to do most of their shopping in-store, 43 per cent intend to shop primarily online, and 47 per cent admit they will do some or most of their shopping last minute. “Shoppers are well informed on the shipping delays and inventory issues, and while many will visit stores early to ensure they get what they want. We also found that many Canadian consumers plan to visit stores in December, with many planning to do much of their gift buying at the last minute,” says Robin Sahota, a managing director at Accenture.
