In the three days before Christmas and following, Americans expect to have holiday shopping left to do.
About 20 percent of consumers thought they would still be doing some Christmas shopping during the two days before Christmas, on Christmas Day and after the holiday, according to survey results from the National Retail Federation.
Nearly 10 percent of the shoppers surveyed expected to buy their final gifts Dec. 23, and another 9 percent thought they would buy their final gifts Dec. 24. Fewer than 1 percent expected to shop on Christmas Day, and more than 4 percent thought they would wrap up their shopping after the holiday, the National Retail Federation report says.
About 11 percent of men and approximately 8 percent of women surveyed planned to finish their gift shopping on Christmas Eve, a press release from the organization says.
