American consumers in a mood to spend this Easter


April 10, 2014 | By RetailME Bureau

According to National Retail Federation’s (NRF) Easter Spending Survey conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics, the average American celebrating Easter holiday will spend an average of $137.46 on apparel, food, candy, gifts and more, slightly less than the $145.13 spent last year. Total spending is expected to reach $15.9 billion.

“The winter doldrums left consumers with a lot of pent-up demand, and though many Americans may take a cautious approach to spending on Easter items this year, retailers are anticipating that warmer weather will easily put consumers in the mood to buy bright clothes, holiday decorations and more,” believes NRF president and CEO Matthew Shay. “As one of the biggest holidays of the year, retailers are looking forward to increased customer traffic in stores and online, and will roll out promotions on everything from garden supplies and patio sets to apparel and grocery items as they help their customers prepare for the holiday,” he adds.

“Americans are eager to dip their toes in the fresh green grass this Easter and celebrate the day with friends and family. Though they are planning to trim their budgets in terms of spending on food, clothes and gifts, most will look for personal and fun items that won’t break the bank in order to enjoy the day,” says Prosper Insights and Analytics director Pam Goodfellow.
