Despite varying consumer confidence mainly attributed to falling stock prices and relentless unemployment, many online retailers are still gearing up for positive sales this holiday season:

  • Holiday retail sales for 2011 are expected to increase 2.8% to $465.6 billion (National Retail Federation)
  • Internet sales will grow by 12% (matching last year) (eMarketer)

NRF graph

Although the NRF is forecasting 2.8% growth this holiday, other data shows that the struggling economy may impact holiday sales.  For instance, PriceGrabber.com found that 45% of online shoppers plan to spend less this holiday.
