The 2021 Holiday Season Is Here.

The holiday season is officially in full swing. Halloween is behind us, Thanksgiving next week, and Hanukkah and Christmas are around the corner. This holiday season will look a little differently than even last year’s pandemic holiday season. The pandemic is still here and impacting supply chains more than ever this season.

Even with the supply chains hindered, the overall US holiday sales are expected to grow at a substantial rate of 8.5%-10% over 2020. This means consumers are still wanting to participate in this holiday season at a high rate. This is largely thanks to a slight slowdown of the pandemic compared to this time last year; but, also due to omnichannel shopping becoming a common trend. Consumers are turning to a wide variety of channels to experience brands – from TikTok to Google searches. Here are our top recommendations to have your location thrive this holiday season:
