Holiday sales are expected to climb at a record pace this year

With the price of toys, clothes and other popular gifts on the rise, retailers are expecting to welcome bigger crowds on Black Friday, a day known for its discounts, even as the Covid-19 pandemic remains top of mind.

Holiday sales are expected to climb at a record pace this year, with the National Retail Federation predicting an increase of between 8.5% and 10.5%. That would put sales during November and December at $843.4 billion and $859 billion.

Retailers have been trying to hire more workers to ring up purchases and speed products to shelves. Global supply chain issues could make it challenging for shoppers to find the gifts they’re seeking. And shoppers may not be as impressed with the deals they find when they get there.
