Pricegrabber Survey Says No Holiday Blues This Year

Pricegrabber has released the results of a holiday shopping survey, and despite consumer gloom reported elsewhere, it looks like online retailers are going to have a merry holiday season.

93 percent of respondents agreed that they expect to shop and buy more online this year than last year. The survey found that 46 percent of respondents will shop online more this holiday compared to previous years specifically because of higher gasoline prices.

Online shoppers also expect to dedicate high percentages of their holiday buying online, saying they expect to do 50 percent of their shopping online.
