IT LOOKS LIKE ANOTHER BIG YEAR FOR ONLINE SHOPPING:
Online holiday spending rose 25 percent to 30 percent from a year ago, with hot items being computer hardware, consumer electronics and clothing, according to two reports released on Thursday.
A report from Goldman Sachs, Nielsen/NetRatings and Harris Interactive found that between Oct. 29 and Dec. 23 retail shoppers in the U.S. spent $30.1 billion online, up 30 percent from the same period a year ago.
Good. It’s the environmentally friendly way to shop!
