You don’t have to see Cyber Monday statistics to know that Americans are doing more and more of their holiday shopping online. But with all the extra holiday pressures and gift buying, it’s easy to get caught up in shopping and forget about online security.
According To the National Retail Federation, consumers plan to spend an average of $935.58 during the holiday shopping season! While big box stores are banking that those will almost certainly be spent in their stores, small businesses should be preparing to welcome the circulation of those dollars into their communities as well.
The holidays are just around the corner, and shoppers will soon be off in search of the perfect gifts, that's if they haven’t started already. Armed with lists from friends, family, teachers and everyone in between, it’s not a question of if they’re going to buy but rather from which retailer?
