Retail trends

At the beginning of this year, there was still great uncertainty about consumer spending, but we have great news! The NRF now forecasts that 2021 retail sales in the U.S. will be higher than expected. Moreover, online sales are expected to grow between 18% and 23% to reach a range of $1.09 trillion to $1.13 trillion this year alone, proving consumers continue to love the convenience of ecommerce. Now, you can be part of the lucky sellers that get to cash in. 

There's no denying this is a great chance to embrace the opportunities the fall season brings to grow your business. What are these opportunities? Well, for starters, we have some of the most beloved holidays of the year: Halloween and Thanksgiving. Americans love to go all out to celebrate these important dates, so prepare your store for these huge celebrations!
