Two standout retailers in the post-holiday shopping season were DICK’s Sporting Goods and Best Buy. DICK’s saw visits up over 13% compared to the same weeks in 2019 and 2020, and Best Buy visits were up 6.9%.
Luxury stores also saw significance gains compared to 2019 and 2020 numbers.
The lengthened holiday season and shift in overall shopping behaviors seems to be affecting retail in a post-Christmas setting as well, with an added boost in traffic levels.
These metrics showcase that the post-holiday shopping period is stronger than brick-and-mortar retailers may have initially expected, and will continue to increase in the coming months.
